Throwback Thursday #1 -- Scaling Mountains

In honor of this new blog, I thought it would be fun to share some old posts from my MyFitnessPal blog. I never blogged very regularly over there, but the posts I did make were things that were pretty big to me. So, without further ado, Scaling Mountains from August 14, 2013:

Today I hiked to 14,110 feet of elevation and the summit of Pikes Peak in Colorado. It took about 12 hours. 
I know it's not a milestone for some of my more athletic friends, but this is not something I could ever see myself having done a year ago. Running down the mountain from the summit, I was really encouraged by people who kept asking if we (my family and I) were running the Marathon there this Saturday. 
Maybe someday, but for today having covered the mileage and elevation is a huge victory for me, and one I'll always remember.
And if you are wondering, the donuts at the top only taste good because you've just spent six hours hiking.
