This is why.....


I put up all sorts of material here about fitness, diet, conditioning..... But the real reason that I am interested in all this stuff is because I want to apply it to be fit enough to do and enjoy the things I love.






And I love being in the mountains.

This was yesterday. Perfect weather in the Highlands.

This is what it is all about. Getting here is a big part of why I train.

Looks pretty nice. Where was this at?

I've yet to summit a real mountain and by real I mean one that actually looks and feels like a mountain. I'm still trying though!

I've been on top of a dinky one before and close to the summit of mt washington, NH but that was a no go.

It was a hill called Sgurr Choinnich Mor - one of a group called the Grey Corries in Glen Nevis, just west of Fort William in the West Highlands of Scotland. Further details of the day are here .

Great photos, Chris. Thanks for posting them.

I just may try to make it over there to hike those hills...

Looks fantastic Chris. I never feel more alive than when in the hills. Lakes next weekend - fingers crossed for the weather. Wish it had been last weekend!

methuselah - I hope the weather is good for you this weekend. It makes a huge difference. I've had some great days trudging round hills in the rain - a round of the Mullardoch munros for example that was absolutely soaking and in cloud virtually all day - but sunshine really helps.
