Sunday, 10 February 2008 - Weekend hat trick

Dear God:

Today, I am thankful for a weekend hat trick.

Sport is singularly able to give us peak experiences where we feel completely one with the world and transcend all conflicts as we finally become our own potential. ~George A. Sheehan

Tonight, S, T and I celebrate our weekend hat trick: hiking in the foothills on Friday, bouldering in Ute Valley Park on Saturday, climbing in Red Rock Canyon this afternoon. Not bad for a pair of baby boomer athletes and one very fit 11 year-old chocolate Lab.

I am tired and stiff from bouldering and climbing. Tomorrow will definitely be a rest day unless, of course, the weather is perfect for another outdoor adventure. In winter, we have to make the most of every climbing opportunity.

For this blessing, I am grateful.
