Okay, this one is hilarious!!! This was the very last challenge after all the grueling, arm-hurting, body-hanging, log-hugging challenges that we did. Stepping off a platform.
I would like to believe that I am an adrenaline junkie, a daredevil in a not so crazy way. But this one tops the cake. Memories of jumping off a 30 ft cliff into a pool of water in the Philippines come rushing to my mind. I was paralyzed with fear, literally. Someone almost pushed me off the ledge because it took me, I think, about 15 minutes before I jumped. Everyone was looking at me, either cheering me on to jump or telling me it’s okay if I don’t. But I did jump for the life of me to save my reputation.
Unlike the Philippines, this time, as you can see, I didn’t jump voluntarily. Many thanks to the brave soul who dared “push” me. Without him, I would probably be still up there debating with myself internally. Hehe.
Pushing yourself to your limits, thinking outside your box and challenging your body to what it can do always has this feel good effect on me. No matter how tired or hungry or angry I am.
I did finish the trail, YAY!!!
