Alright not the highest quality image, it was shot with my phone, and its edited a bit, but this was hands down my favorite photo from last week. This of course is Champ, well being Champ. He's the silliest horse I know and always give me a good laugh. One of the great things about taking pictures of him is I never know what I got until I look at everything later, these little nuggets of hilarity are always a surprise.
Switching gears; here's an update on the little progress I've made on my 2015 goals. I got a chance to climb outside this weekend! I went up to Lizards Mouth with a great group of friends and actually had a chance to work on my long term project, The King is Dead V6. For how weak I've been feeling I certainly surprised myself. Getting established to make the first move has never been super easy for me. You have a thin slot for your right hand and a crimp for your left. Get a high right foot and a barely there left heel hook and blast up right to a sharp gaston crimp. I hit that move nearly every time I tried it this weekend. Now its just re-establishing my feet for the next move. It felt really good to hop on that problem again. I'm feeling more motivated to climb in the gym to train so I can finally tick this problem off my to-do list.
I finally picked up one my antique books. I chose William Shakespeare's As You Like It for my first read. I was trying to pick a book and thought I should choose one of the less daunting books that stared back at me, ease into the harder ones.
I still haven't started to pen my trip reports, so I'm lacking on that front, but overall I'm moving forward with the 2015 goals.
