As part of the September checklist challenge for FNS, I officially completed the Mission Peak Hike in Fremont. I had no idea how high this hike was, nor how steep. All I knew was that I needed sunscreen because it wasn’t shaded. My sudo brother in law was kind enough to tag along (without knowing anything about the hike.) We made it to the first peak- and he was like what the heck did I get myself into? Needless to say, I just kept saying, “We can do it!” I think once you get half way, it’s all mental. My calves were so sore from the stairs I ran Friday, but I pushed through and climbed to the top. If you have a chance….check this one off your bucket list. SO worth it!
