After waffling back-n-forth, I agreed to go on another trek up Tiger Mountain. The Lazy Me wanted to curl in up bed with the Paul Maier book I am reading. The Competative Me wanted to face the mountain again, but conquer it with a little more dignity and a lot less concern about having a heart attack.
This time I was ready. I was wearing comfy sweats and a light jacket, and remembered to pack a hair tie, tissue and a lip balm. I was determined to do better. To quote Yogi Berra, “Baseball’s 90 percent mental. The other half is physical.” Even though his math is kinda’ bad, I agree about the 90% mental battle. I was determined.
