Yea box jumps! Woot!

I AM going the distance

 

'Cause all I wanna do is go the distance. Nobody's ever gone the distance with Creed, and if I can go that distance, you see, and that bell rings and I'm still standin', I'm gonna know for the first time in my life, see, that I weren't just another bum from the neighborhood.

Box jumps are super scary for me, probably because I knew a guy who broke his wrist doing them. And I'm a huge spaz. So impressed and inspired by your conquering of the 24"!!!!

[sIGPIC][/sIGPIC]"So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide."

Thanks everyone! 

 

Chris, CB is right - everyone starts at a different height depending on skill level. Some may start higher but will step up instead of jump up. 20" is the shortest height for our standard boxes, then 24", then 30". 

 

It'll be awhile before I make it to 30" :P

Letting go is the hardest asana.

No updates really. Sunday is a rest day. Had dinner with T and watched Griswold's Family Christmas or something - he was shocked I'd never seen it and put it on immediately. *shrug*

 

Won't make it to CF before I get to NY. Hoping to pop into a box while I"m there but it's hard because my schedule is so haywire. You can't just drop in to the boxes in NYC - you have to reserve a time slot. Might not work haha - so might just end up on a couple of freezing runs while I'm in town. 

 

I make NO PROMISES about my eating habits on this trip :)

Dude! Don't tell me things like you knew someone who broke a really vital body part doing something like box jumps! Also - thanks :) At least you ended on a good note!

 

NYC is such a fun place.  Have a great trip.  And eat some great food.

Thank you - I will! Hopefully my digestive tract doesn't hate me at the end of it.

Sitting in the Charlotte airport on my layover... finally catching up on some threads. Thank you guys for keeping up with me even though I've been a little behind lately. I really really appreciate it!

You just have to have fun!! I love travel adventures - they're about experiences and new things, not habit and routine.

If you come back through Charlotte, make sure to stop in at the North Carolina wine shop they have in the airport (you are old to drink, aren't you?). They have some surprisingly nice wines, and gee go figure, it's hard to find them outside NC. have fun in Gotham - haven't been there myself in way too long.
