Took my first jog/walk today in Loose Park-one of our favorite KC places. It was awesome to walk out my door and be there within about 3 minutes. The park was really quiet at 6:15 am. I'm trying to get in shape to go mountain climbing with some of my buddies in August. I'm not really comfortable around mountains unless I have skis on my feet. We are going to climb Mt. Elbert, supposedly the tallest peak in Colorado. It's a "14er" as mountain climber speak goes. Honestly, the thought of attempting this makes me want to throw up, but I will not let fear of the mountain make me it's prey. Loose Park is probably the best place for me to condition myself as it's terrain closely resembles that of the mountain regions. I will continue to update my progress here for the many readers who visit this blog.
