Trapeze (Take 2)


Last night I went back to the Trapeze School for my second time.  Of course,  my friend, Nicole and I, still feeling like newbies, were a bit petrified that we were actually doing this again.  But off we went in the cold and entered into a world of “circus performing”–well that’s what I like to call it.  People were climbing silk ropes, working the static trapeze bar, juggling and doing other types of balancing exercises (think of balancing a person off the palms of your hands and soles of your feet while you are lying on your back).  And we were doing the high flying trapeze!

Climbing up the ladder was not as daunting this time around and once I took my first swing the fears melted away!  In fact, after finally figuring out what the instructor was telling me to do I attempted a flip on the landing and then…wait for it…a catch!  Yes, while doing my knee hang I let my arms drop and reached out to a guy who was swinging on another trapeze and he caught me.  I’m still not quite so sure how that in fact happened but it did!  My landing could use some work though.

Here’s some video to prove that I have gone off the deep end!  Enjoy watching.

About mileoneandcounting

I'm a young professional living in the Washington, DC area. Since moving here in 2007 I have honed a passion for running and fitness. Growing up I played soccer and softball (and tested track & field for one year). After college I ran a few 5K races, but running was really only a means to staying in shape for me. Never in my wildest imagination had I thought I'd ever run a marathon, let alone three. Nor did I think I'd get the running bug after doing so, but I'll admit I'm hooked! Over the years my blog has grown into so much more than a running blog though. Sometimes I have deep thoughts. Other times I'm simply sharing a training story or a review of a product. Here's the place where you'll learn about me through my many adventures--even I enjoy going back to re-read some posts from time to time. I've also been able to hone my love for health and wellness through my business called IDLife which stands for Individually Designed Life. I'd love to help inspire you to live your best life yet so please don't hesitate to reach out to me and may my words resonate with you. See you on the trails...
