52 Projects is an adventure in discovery. Every week, for 52 weeks, do something. Something you’ve never done before. Something you’ve always wanted to do. Something that scares you. Something that inspires you. Something that inspires others. Something that tickles your fancy. Something that caught your eye. Something that just popped into your head. It can be big. It can be small. It can be whatever you want it to be. Find out how doing something can lead you to discover things about yourself, your world, your God. Then, come here on Sundays and share it with others. I'll write about mine here, you write about yours on your blog, then use the tool in my post to link to your something. Please feel free to jump in and participate anytime throughout the year!

Week 4: Rock Climbing
This week’s project was rock climbing. I’ve wanted to try this for a long time. Yesterday we went to Go Vertical indoor rock climbing gym in Philadelphia. The best part about this is that we made it a family outing. Breen’s daughter Christine, her husband Dave and I took the 2 hour class while Breen, his son Tim, Max and Kendall climbed in the main gym. After the class was done, we all met up and took turns climbing and belaying each other. With all of this cold weather and snow we've been experiencing lately, it was so good to get ourselves out of the house for some exercise. I definitely want to go back and climb more. My strength was on the ground belaying. I found that I froze up on several of my climbs. Basically, I was nervous and tense during the climbs. My arms felt like Jell-O and at a certain height my hands and legs just wouldn’t move anymore. But I believe it’s really “mind over matter” and with a few more visits I’ll get more comfortable. Look out Mt. Everest, here I come :))
What did you do this week?
