41 and counting
My 41st birthday came and went, and about the same time, my right leg just... stopped. Now, I can still move it, and I can still walk, and I can still DO things... I just can't seem to get the leg to do what I want to do, when I want to do it. The brain mis...

#think/able
The Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research has one heck of a marketing/branding team, I have to admit. They have a great cause to support, and the spokesperson/namesake is someone that anyone from the 80s has to have at least a little twinge in t...

Processing defeat
Someone told me before I left, that I would leave a part of my heart in Africa. I believe she was right. And not for the reasons that I thought, I think.  I got down the mountain by a 2hour, painful, painful climb on feet that are so bruised, battered, and ...

Day 3 on the mountain
Well, just learned something else new... Tanzanian keyboards do not match US ones, which makes touch typing in the dark a little more difficult! On the 3rd day, I had expected to have a conversation about whether or not I was going to go out that day... but...

T - 2.5 Days
I have 3 work days left as of today, 2 here in Cleveland, 1 from home, and then I'm OFF. Wow. We signed the lease on the new apartment. As soon as I get back, we're MOVING. Can we say INSANE? My summit gear has come in handy this week as I've walked to work...

Unplugging
Every few years, I do in fact get a chance to 'unplug' - meaning that I can't take with me or can't access the internet from where I'm going. In 2010, that was a 10 day long backpacking trip, in 2012 it was a 7 day cruise. Somehow, this time, because I'll b...

Readjusting
Readjusting back to 'normal' life here in the states has been a challenge. With the move, my new job, and everything else, I have not had time to even HAVE jet lag. Two weeks out (almost) and I am still fried and peeling, but look must less like a severe bu...

Sunburn
I had been doing so good all week about putting on sunblock - 85SPF.  Till the day came when I had to come down. I forgot. About 20 minutes into the walk, my face felt flushed and we did a mad dash to get me bathed in sunscreen.  Too late.  I have what has ...

What NOT to say to someone... ever.
While sitting in my tent, half crying, half just being angry with myself for not being able to make it because I'm too darned slow... and now, petrified and panicky about the big rocks I  kept falling over... one of my team mates came to see me. He said tha...

Less than 24 hours!!
