When friend Lynn mentioned wanting to go zip-lining I didn't even hesitate clicking "purchase" on the Groupon-type coupon we bought to visit a local farm that has a zip-lining course. Who am I?
Since these types of activities usually have strict weight limits, it is something that I never would have been able to do even 2 years ago. I didn't even think of it until after the purchase - now that's a NSV!
So Saturday we loaded up and headed into the hills of Tennessee.
|All geared up and ready to go!|
|Lynn is fearless!|
|My first ride in - my eyes MAY HAVE been closed.|
|Group shot on the smallest platform ever.|
|KG and I after the 2nd line.|
|Where I almost died.|
|Get me down from here.|
|After my death defying experience...not having it!|
|Last line - finally on the ground!|
|So glad to be on the ground again!|
There was one line that pretty much ended my "oh this isn't so bad" thought process. I got "stuck" on the line just short of the platform and had to "jump" my hands from my harness to a rope so I could be pully-ed in. Yeah, just hanging by my harness was not the best feeling in the world for someone that is scared of heights and I was a little shaky after that. But I got through it.
More importantly, I'm so thankful my weight loss has given me this and so many other opportunities to live a "normal" life! It's so liberating to know I really can do "anything" and my weight will not hold me back!
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
