Lookout Mountain III

Thursday, August 06, 2009

Hello again. Today I set out at about 7:47, so it was earlier again. It was cloudy outside and looked wonderful for a day on the mountain. I parked and walked along the concrete and noticed it sprinkling a bit. That is perfect---- a little harder now----oh yahhhh! As I got closer to the park entrance, a gentleman was walking down and back, saying it "was liquid sunshine". Like maybe the rain detered his motivation. I thought to myself, the drops are here and there, and even if I get drenched, it will be well worth it. I set out, and along the way, found different -tributary-paths which would still lead me back to trail "308". I noticed more in front of me today. Birds in groups of 3 talking to each other as they were looking for food. 2 birds walking across the path in front of me. I knew their name, now I don't remember it. But they had a little tuft of feathers on the top of their head. There were some beautiful barrel cactus which I had not noticed before. The air was very still with the sun peaking in and out of the clouds above. As I walked closer to the close of the mountain hike, I noticed how already my body felt so relaxed this time. I was not out of breath as I was yesterday, so maybe a good sign that I can push it more tomorrow. Keep pushing:)!! emoticon

    Oh to live in an area with mountains...
    Thanks so much for sharing this. I've been having trouble getting motivated to exercise. It's more interesting to get outside, but I don't do well in the heat (not that it has been in the 90's in Chicago). Maybe I'll try to get out and walk around the nearby park tomorrow morning when the kids are off to summer camp. It's certainly not a mountain, but it's a start.
