Bucket List — Walk Up Stone Mountain

Today was a great day. I checked off something from my Bucket List… the 1 mile walk up Stone Mountain in Georgia.

I knew when I decided to visit Atlanta that going to Stone Mountain what is one of the things I wanted to do. Since I started walking I thought it would be a great idea to walk up to the top of Stone Mountain when I was here. So this morning I made my way to Stone Mountain found the right trail to go up and I walked up the 1 miles up to the very top of Stone Mountain.

It wasn’t a hard climb there were a few steep areas and there were some wet patches on the granite but overall I made the claim without any effort.

Once I was on top of Stone Mountain the view was spectacular it was a brisk 50° up there but the wind made it feel like it was 35°. The first picture is of me on top of Stone Mountain and if you look in the very back you can see the skyline of Atlanta.

I spent a few minutes up there thinking that I would have never been able to make that hike two years ago. It is amazing how far I’ve come to try to get healthy and to try to do more things.

The trek down from the top was a lot easier than going up. I am so glad that I made it up to the top of Stone Mountain and was able to check something off my bucket list. After I was done and that walk I went to the main entrance of Stone Mountain and I walked around the park for a mile. I felt great it must’ve been the fresh Georgia air the bright sunny that day in the accomplishment that I did earlier that day.

So now I need to find what’s next on my bucket list so I can check it off.

Today was a great day.

Side note: the next time I take this adventure I want to do it with someone special so we can share the adventure together.



It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. Life just seems to happen and time goes by so quickly.

But something wonderful has happened in my life that caught me off guard.

I’ve never been this happy and excited about something ever.

It’s a good feeling and I want it to last forever.

Will see where this new journey takes me.

Here are a few of the signs that I’ve gotten lately.

And as always, make it a great day.

Here Is Your Sign

I have been finding good signs lately. Here are some of them.

Make it a great day!

Mascarita 5k Run/Walk

This past weekend. With the help of my coach, I decided to sign up for my first 5K walk in San Antonio.

The one I picked was the MASCARITA RUN.

The second annual Mascarita 5k Run/Walk! The race is going to take place at the scenic Mission River Walk!

Since April 2018, I have probably been doing a 5K worth of walking, by myself. But this time I will be walking with 100’s of other people.

Anout 2 years ago. When I started my get healthy journey, I told one of my-workers that if I sing up fornan5K walk, of he would do it with me?

It’s only taken me 2 years to finally get to a place where I can walk 5K without passing our or stopping.

So I’m excited about the walk coming up. I hope it’s the first of many that I do.

A special shout out to my coach, RC, thanks for always being a cheerleader and and sounding board when I need it.

Picturs to come.

Tough Times

Oh, how I needed to read this today.

Never Forget

On this day… 17 years ago 246 people went to sleep in preparation for their morning flights. 2,606 people went to sleep in preparation for work in the morning tomorrow. 343 firefighters went to sleep in preparation for their morning shift. 60 police officers went to sleep in preparation for morning patrol. 8 paramedics went to sleep in preparation for the morning shift of saving lives. None of them saw past 10:00am Sept 11, 2001. In one single moment life may never be the same. As you live and enjoy the breaths you take today and tonight before you go to sleep in preparation for your life tomorrow, kiss the ones you love, snuggle a little tighter, and never take one second of your life for granted.

Never forget.

Saying of the Day

I have no idea what is going on right now in my life. But it’s about to get interesting.
