My First Mountain

This is the first mountain I have to climb before I can make it up any others.  Today, as I was feeling tall looking out over my living room and imagining I was surveying the Andes or Himalayas, it felt great knowing that one day I really would!

Thanks to my dear friend (you know who you are, Lisa) I have been the proud owner of this excercise apparatus.  I’ve now begun using it for the purpose it was intended, rather than the quite stylish sculpture you see here.  By the way, Lisa is my super buff friend who actually uses her elliptical machine.  She gives me plenty of support, but only I can motivate myself.
