Here’s part two of of my day on the trails last weekend. I was doing my FCT treatment so I had to be outdoors all day, avoiding EMFs as much as possible.
On Sunday, after running and having brunch with UnitedLA I had a couple of options:
- I could relax, sit under a tree, and read a book.
- I could take a hike to the Hollywood Sign.
Since I just finished running 10.5 miles with the running group, the logical thing to do would be to relax under a tree with a book. I don’t know what came over me… I decided to go take a hike!
Yeah… Google Maps wasn’t very helpful out on the trails to the Hollywood Sign. Thankfully, I met two other hikers who had lost their way to the Hollywood Sign and we decided to make it a team effort to find the right path. I needed company and they needed water… Luckily, I had an extra bottle filled with water and Nuun for them to share.
Finally, we turned a corner, looked up, and saw the Hollywood Sign!
I was not looking forward to walking all the way back to my car from here. I had already added an extra two miles to my hike when I got lost. Thankfully, Alexa & Grace agreed to drive me back to my car from Griffith Observatory where they had parked. They probably saved my life… Lol.
Although I got lost, I still had a blast. Was I tired? Of course I was! But reaching my goal and making new friends along the way made everything worthwhile. It’s a lot like life: sometimes we make mistakes and get off course. But your attitude really does make a huge difference. I was open to the adventure and I wasn’t going to give up and go home without reaching my goal. Plus, it really does help when you find people along the way who are on a similar journey. You can help, support and encourage one another each step of the way.
I can’t help but look back at these pictures and smile. Last Sunday was a good day. 🙂
