I’m fairly certain that Marketing 101 says “Keep pictures of your gnarly, ruined feet OFF the internet!” But I’m a rebel, ya?
I PROMISE you that will be the last one! Just wanted to show you where I’m at, because frankly my family isn’t exactly oozing sympathy anymore.
OK, I’m done with the pity party. But did I mention how much it hurts?? OK, OK, but are you feeling bad for me yet, because that is definitely what I am fishing for here…
Anyway, it seems like every time I get in a groove of writing, blogging, seeing clients, a Jewish holiday happens and throws me off track completely. This time it was Passover and I was the designated seder host:
Twas a lovely evening!
We decided on a Stay-cation this year and pledged to spend every day that was not a holy day, out and about, climbing the land. We hiked every day! Yes, with that toe. Yes, I whined so much that everyone left me behind.
We hiked the South:
The giant on the right, simultaneously rooting for the Indiana Hoosiers and the Vancouver Canuks, is MY BABY, by the way.
We hiked the North:
This is the breathtaking memorial for the 44 people who lost their lives in Israel’s deadliest forest fire on Mount Carmel in 2010.
At the end of all the exhausted climbing, we felt like we had walked all the way back to prehistoric times!
The Carmel Caves where some amazing prehistoric remains have been found.
I have to say that as the first time we have ever taken a hiking holiday when I am NOT training for some future race, how crazily liberated I felt! I didn’t have to worry about my knees, or about twisting an ankle and having months of training ruined. I feel like I have my life back! Well, in 6 months when I have normal toenails again, I imagine I will feel like I have my life back, but this was pretty close.
Clearly, it was time for me to move on from that hobby and so far I am really glad I did!
Alas, the holiday ended and the back-up of waiting clients began. Now somehow it is Shabbat again?! Next week starts off with a very exciting Sugar Blues workshop I’ll be leading for a private group in Efrat on Sunday! After that is done, I pledge to be back to a regular schedule of writing. I have so much amazing information to share! Stay tuned…
And no more toes. Scouts honor.Pin It
