A year or so ago I stumbled upon the power couple @monkyseemonkydo & @ramirasamny who truly inspired me to take on climbing, as they are inspirational mountaineers.
Already I was very into getting out doors, for runs, hikes, anything to breathe in the fresh clean air, as it brings an overall renewal of health to the body.
I remember getting so excited to join them on an expedition that I reached out to @lifehappensoutdoors to find out more on how I can treck to the top of a mountain with the professionals on the other side of the globe. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to join them, but I took it upon myself to become a better hiker in general, if I’m to ever climb a mountain.
Fast forward to this year, starting off on a rather difficult and rocky hike up Cowles Mountain, I couldn’t help but think of how if it weren’t for Ghida and Ramy going public with their inspirational accounts, would I be here? Because in the very beginning when I started up -the land was all muddy, and being the pristine girly girl I am - I literally stopped to turn back around thinking to myself ‘hmm maybe this isn’t for me.’ But I really wanted to do this, I pushed myself away from my doubts and fears made my way through.
Now standing atop of the mountain, taking in all of the beauty i understand why they do this. If runners high is real (which it is) mountain climbing high is mesmerizingly beautiful and I encourage you all to try it at least once in life. Insha’Allah 2019 has more mountain climbing in store for me and inshallah @greenteam79 will get to join me next since he stayed back home with Noah. So thank you power couple- may God bless you and protect you always.
