Homer's Travels: A Few Steps Too Far

A Few Steps Too Far

Today is Trek Up The Tower, an annual charity event.  I've done it four times, the last being last year.  Also last year I did the forty story stair climb with one of the Wife's nieces.  You can read about my other Trek Up The Tower experiences here, here, here, and here.

I signed up for it again this year but, for various reasons, I will not be doing it.  My surgery, which is practically all healed up, stopped me from training for the last few weeks.  Being the competitive guy I can be, I knew I would not have a good climb time this year.

At the same time, the Wife's niece also had a good excuse not to do it this year too.  Her Group Improv students are going to All-State today and she will be there to support them.

I'm sure the entry fee will go to good causes and, I've been told, I can still get my T-Shirt, commemorative towel, and medal even though I'm not doing any climbing.

If everything goes well with the Appalachian Trail, I will be hella-ready to do Trek Up The Tower in 2018.  Can't wait.
