One of my in shape, adventurous sisters-in-law arranged for a group of us to hike to the Y on Memorial Day morning. I remembered thinking, after hiking the trail last time, that I would never do that again. But I did. The only reasons I made it were:
1. Derek stayed with me the whole time.
2. I packed a granola bar which gave me a boost of energy when I needed it.
3. I was hiking back near my niece Tessa -- who is 3 -- and she said, "Let's run Mom!" We were probably half way up, and I already wanted to be done. I felt like a wimp and decided I'd better keep going!
That being said, I did have Kayli take a couple of pictures of me so that I could prove I made it, just in case I really follow through with my "I'll never do that again!" this time around.
