Non-blogger contest entry. Why I felt great here! It’s a good one.

Shannon's contest submission 
Another great reader who does not have a blog (yet, hahaha) wanted to take part in all this inspiration.  Her name is Shannon and she accomplished a very awesome display of endurance.  Check this non-blogger’s contest submission out.  As you can see, the pic is great.
This picture was taken in Sept. 08, at the time I had only lost 40 pounds.  I had always wanted to climb Mt. St. Helens and knew that I was not fit enough.  I told myself that this was the year, so when the opportunity came around I said, “YES!”  When we reached the rim of the mountain I was overcome with emotion!  Every time I look at this picture it makes me feel so good about myself.  It gives me a feeling of accomplishment.  A feeling of “I can do this!”  Don’t get me wrong, there were times during this climb when I thought “I can’t make it”.  Yet, in the end, I did; and surprised myself with the endurance I had.
