I’ve recently updated my “About Me” section to include some pretty amazing happenings in my life so far. Read below for the newest portion of this post:
“Guess what? I made it! I summitted Kilimanjaro on July 2, 2012, and my teammates and I raised over $230,000 for cancer programs and services at LIVESTRONG! We were inspired to climb by so many amazing people and stories, and the good thoughts, support, and kind words all helped us make it to the summit, where it was a balmy -35 degrees Fahrenheit.
As I begin to readjust to life after climbing a 19,341 foot mountain, I’m still trying to figure out if I want to keep blogging, or close this chapter of my life. I’m thinking the former—especially because I have big plans: after making it to the roof of Africa, I’m trying to assess if I’m ready to run a marathon, paddle 21 miles, or do some other cool things, too, all in the name of fighting against cancer, and elevating my outlook on life. I want to expand my ability to contribute to society as a healthier, happier, and better person; what better way to do it than to share positive things online with others?
So, please keep up with me on this blog to find out what I’m up to next. Time will only tell, but I hope to keep growing as a person and making the best of any challenges life may throw my way. Stay tuned!”
