My journey… flying high!

Posted May 22nd, 2010 by hallter

What a way to end the challenge, but on a very high note! This morning we got to spend time on the Challenge Course on campus. We did a mini-version of it at the beginning of the challenge in Dixon Rec with a series of group-oriented activities. Reflecting on where we have come in this challenge, the mini to full challenge course was an awesome analogy of where we started to where we are now and where we can go.

We ended the morning with all of us doing the 35 foot zip-line and having to step off a platform, trusting the equipment and more importantly, the people on the course with you. I feel it was an excellent way to prove to myself how far I’ve come and what I am capable of when I try. I am not saying that it was easy and there were some moments during the morning in which I wasn’t sure I could, but the pay-off was so incredible! I am so glad that I tried. Hearing everyone yell from the ground in support is what helped the most!

It’s just one more way that I know what I can do and that I can continue this journey. All I have to do is take the first step and try–because I can take the second step!!

Take that first step!


Me and Abbee about to ‘high’ five on the log about 30 feet above the ground, right before we crossed paths and repelled down! Thanks Theresa for the photo!
