Getting Ready to Go Over The Hill
Friday, August 14, 2015
I recently realized (during one of my walks) that in 6 months, I will turn 60. The thought came to me that I will be going "over the hill". (What age do you go over the hill??? Maybe it's just a bigger hill every decade.) Anyway I thought I should do something BIG to celebrate. As I was walking I looked up and saw my favorite mountain, Ben Lomond!!! It is not the highest mountain in our area, but it is the most majestic. If you've ever seen a Paramount Movie, then you've seen Ben Lomond. It is the mountain in their logo. (The guy that designed their logo came from my town and used Ben Lomond as the model.) Well I decided then and there that for my 60th Bday I would celebrate by climbing Ben Lomond (a 15 miles hike) However, I can't climb it in the winter, so I actually will be climbing it next summer. So for now, I am getting myself ready to "go over the hill" by getting ready to go over the really BIG hill by my house - Ben Lomond!!! I am now officially in hill climbing training. I've changed my daily walks to now go uphill and am gradually walking longer every day!!! Hope I will be ready to go over the hill!!!!!!
