The Human Body is Amazing

Green-summit-aaron-1-1-13

8 weeks ago my body was about 50 pounds underweight at 129 lbs.


All the muscles in my body were severely atrophied.

It was intensely taxing to walk a few feet down the hall in the hospital.  I had to lay down sweating and panting from the exertion after.

At the beginning of December I began watching daily in awe as my muscles came back to life and my legs visibly grew each day.

I now weigh 161 pounds.

Today I ran/hiked 12 miles round trip with 2500 feet of vertical gain to the top of Green Mountain and back via bear canyon in Boulder.

It took just over 2 1/2 hours and I feel fine now.  Legs are tired, but I still have plenty of energy.

I am amazed at how fast the body can heal and recover.  It seems miraculous to me.

And I am super grateful to have my life back.  Words cannot express it well.

I absolutely love life!

I am so grateful to be capable of starting 2013 conquering a summit alongside my best friend and wife Nan.

Welcome to 2013!  It’s going to be the best year yet.

P.S. This Is A Truly Amazing Life.
