SplashFits hit the 1000 Steps on 17-6-12!
We had a great mix of new and experienced 12WBTers that are part of the SplashFits Facebook Group walk the 1000 Steps in Ferntree Gully in Victoria this morning. http://www.dandenongrangesattractions.com.au/attractions/1000-steps/
The weather leading up to the event was miserable and raining. I really thought I would need to cancel the event for safety reasons. Early this morning the radar was telling me the rain had passed so the event was on! Off to the Steps we Go!
Here we are at the bottom of the steps with smiles on our faces but some had doubts about whether they can make it to the top...
Are we there yet?? This is taking forever but we are pretending to enjoy it!
Woohoo! The first 4 SplashFits are at the top!
And two more SplashFits join us a couple of minutes later!
We did it! But where is Annie and Abbie...?
Annie and her personal cheer leader walked up and down the steps twice!
Up and down the 1000 Steps and our heart rate monitors prove we worked hard.
Today was a great experience for all of us. Half of us had never walked the steps before and doubted our ability to complete it. But when you get your mind in the right place, decide to give it a go and have the support of your team mates, the achievable becomes smashable! And the scenery was absolutely gorgeous.
Afterwards we all enjoyed a social chat in the local cafe. We debriefed on the ups and downs of our week, and shared experiences to help each other as we move forward. Well done SplashFits! We'll be doing it again in a fortnight.
