Promise Honored

September 30, 2017

My son’s gift to me this year was a hiking trip to Glacier National Park in Montana .  What was so special was his promise to hike at my pace.  Michael is a strong fit 24 year x swimmer and current rock climber.  He adds a mental and physical  intensity to everything he does.  I am a 61 year old dentist with two broken toes and an inconsistent and “light” exercise routine.  I would not have stood a chance if not for this “promise”.

What a present!  What a promise!!

Michael warned me that it would be hard and not fun if I did not get into better shape. With the encouragement of Kyle, one of the trainers at the Equinox gym, I worked out almost every day.  Treadmill, Stair master , Spin Classes, light jogs.

I am writing this blog so it is apparent that we survived the mountain.  The first day was the longest hike and despite blistered feet, I finished in a reasonable time.  Michael left once to explore an additional trail with no consequences. The second day involved a change of plans.  The fires raging below us dictated that we find a safer trail.  Michael found a narrow trail and we proceeded.   At a fork in the path, he wanted to take the road to the top, one that would give him a view to one of the Glaciers.  We separated and his plan was that we would meet on the trail, he on his way down and me still going up. Later we found out that this was Bear Country and it was not advisable to travel alone !

We had a great trip. Michael knew my limitations and accepted them.  I am looking forward to our next adventure.  Mount Fuji ?

Promise Honored.

I love my son.

Maddie graduated The University of Pittsburgh School of Nursing this weekend.  It was a great party.  We love our children and are very proud of their accomplishments. We were happy to support them through universities of their choice.  We celebrated their successes  and consoled them on  their setbacks.

There are no more big tuition checks to write each semester!

We are done!
