I hike to defy rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and other autoimmune diseases and disabling conditions that I deal with on a daily basis. I have been hiking 1 peak per week over 3 years - and I plan to keep going as long as I can. This journey to hike 1 peak per week started in a somewhat unintentional way . . . one day about 3 years ago I was feeling out of shape and a discouraged that I could not do the things that I used to enjoy so much like running and playing basketball. One day I thought, "I'm going to go hike a peak today." So I did. I picked Grandeur Peak since from what I read about the hike, it wasn't too difficult, but it still would be a challenge. I barely made it to the top. When I got to the top, it was such a victory for me that I thought, "I wonder if I could hike another peak next week?" After two weeks in a row, I thought, "what if I could hike a peak five weeks in a row?" That led to 10 weeks, which led to 20 weeks. 20 weeks was only 6 weeks away from half of a year, so 26 weeks became the next goal. Then I thought, "wouldn't it be crazy if I did this for a whole year?" 52 weeks came and went of 1 peak per week, which then turned into 104 weeks, then 156 weeks in June of 2019, and 208 weeks in June of 2020. Some weeks' peaks are very minor - but often - it is those minor peaks that are the most meaningful to me because those tend to be the days when I am struggling - but I am determined to keep on keepin' on (as my grandmother would say). To me, hiking peaks represents a statement about life. Sometimes there are challenges that look almost insurmountable. However, by taking those small, sometimes hesitant, but continued steps forward, I can get there. Experience, opportunity, beauty, hardship, lessons learned, awe, humility, and gratitude frame my journey. Sometimes I dedicate a peak hike for an individual who is facing their own difficult climb in life, and I bring a rock back down from the top for them as a symbolic representation of the power of determination, choice, and hope. I hike because I love it! I plan to keep on going as long as I can. #1peakperweek #titaniumjointsrock #RAandOAwillnotdecideforme #themountainsarecalling
