Summiting Mount Liberty
Sunday, July 14th, 2013
This weekend I took on the biggest physical feat since my accident. I climbed to the summit of Mount Liberty at 4,459 ft. My college buddy Pete brought me up to New Hampshire to climb it, but neither of had done it before. We had no clue that the trail started at the bottom and went pretty much straight up for four miles.
At points I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to make it. I had to seriously consider if I’d have to turn around if a break on the side of the mountain, some water and Powerbar gels didn’t perk up my legs. I don’t have the same fitness I once did and can’t remember the last time I’ve been healthy and doubted myself that much.
As you can clearly tell, I made it. There were 360 views of pretty much all of northern New Hampshire. Well worth all the sweat.
My legs are still killing me, but I couldn’t be happier to be back to doing more “normal” weekend activities. After all, tomorrow marks just 5 months since the accident and I couldn’t even pick up a jar of peanut butter or a gallon of milk. It has been a long road, but I can’t be more grateful.
