It's the "A Mountain Half-Marathon," and yes, there's a reason it's named after the mountain.
I can see the A from several places around town -- when I'm at the University hospital for Lauren's labwork, when we're on our way to Girls Chorus rehearsals, or when I'm just out shopping on that side of town.
Sometimes when I see the mountain, I think, "What in the world did I get myself into?" Other times, I look at the mountain and think, "No Big Deal. I can conquer that."
This week, I looked at A Mountain and declared myself Undaunted. I am "courageously resolute in the face of difficulty," and I will not be discouraged. (definitions from Merriam-Webster.com)
U is for Undaunted -- my contribution to this week's Blogging through the Alphabet challenge.
