I’ve wanted to do this for a long long time. Today, Doni and I went rock climbing in Tempe. Turns out, there’s a whole rock climbing gym right next to where I work.

Y’all might remember Doni from a few months ago when this blog first started. He was “The Running Partner.” During my second 5k, he ran with me. We lost touch for a bit, but recently reconnected.

Nervous was certainly the emotion. Would I be able to climb anything? Was I too heavy to be able to safely perform this activity?

It was so much fun! After learning the ropes..literally..we were given free range of the gym to explore. While we stuck to the easier climbs, I still felt super confident after reaching those heights. The ropes didn’t snap. I didn’t die. Today was a good day.
