Conquering the Steps
In late 2015, I started working out again. The main goal was to stop the weight gain I was experiencing. Read the blog here. One additional goal I set for myself last year was to run the steps at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, aka the “Rocky Steps.”
After this video posted on my Facebook page, several of my friends said, “Hey, we want to do that too,” which makes another trip to Philadelphia a perfect way to honor the start of my 47th trip around the sun.
On Sunday, April 10th (new date), we will get up early and caravan from the DMV to Philadelphia to run (walk, skip) up the Rocky Steps!
This trip is in conjunction with Michelle Antoinette of Brown and Healthy and Raven Adisa Ekundayo with The Love Movement: 4 Seasons of Awesomeness. We are going to get to the top of these iconic steps and conquer whatever obstacles they represent in your life.
