Back in 2010, I wrote up a list of things I wanted to accomplish that year. Many, I achieved–taking a dance class, getting properly fitted for a bra, getting my passport and taking an international trip–and some things have yet to be ticked off my list (surf lessons). But over the weekend, I knocked off yet another item: go hiking.
On Sunday, I headed up to Griffith Park–an expansive, urban oasis in Los Angeles–and hit the Mt. Hollywood hiking trail. Although it was tough (I’m a first timer), I made it to the top. Sure I was winded, but the view from the mountainside was breathtaking (peep the above picture, I took it yesterday) and I enjoyed my hike much more than any gym workout.
Yesterday, I decided to do it again.
Maybe I was inspired by the ladies of GirlTrek, or perhaps I’m just looking for yet another way to spice up my workouts, but I went for another hike and I think I’m officially hooked.
Because I’m a Gemini I hate being bored. Whether it’s taking pole dancing or Zumba, joining a boot camp, or hitting the trails, I’m always looking for interesting ways to get in a little physical activity.
But how about you?
Do you love hiking or working out outdoors? What activities do you do to stay fit?
