On my run Wednesday I started to think about how climbing a mountain is used as a metaphor for many situations people are confronted with.  It represents something that is difficult and arduous; that takes a maximum effort to scale.  Sofa2summit.com is literally about climbing mountains but anyone reading this may have a mountain of his or her own that is out there to attempt. 

Your mountain may be starting a new business, getting your financial house in order, restoring your health so you can get off the meds, trekking across Mongolia, who knows???  It’s your’s to dream. 

Here’s one thing that is surely true: if you’re fit, you will have a better outlook, more energy and strength to launch (or re-launch) your attempt on your mountain.  So.... get off your sofa and get onto your summit!
