When I woke up in the morning I felt excited about doing the Grouse Grind.  At the same time I also dreaded it because I was still sick.  As I was walking to school, I thought about who I would be walking with and how long it would take.  Last year it took me about an hour and fifteen minutes to complete.  When I walked into the class room there were a few of my classmates there already.  I gazed at the board and saw who I would be riding with.  When we arrived at the mountain, I frantically looked for my friends.  During the first quarter my legs felt different, they were sore!  At the half way point they started to feel normal again.  I wondered what changed and why.  During the hike I took in the scenery.  It was nice when the sun was coming through the tress.  After making it to the top of the mountain I felt very accomplished and hungry.  My friends and I went to the cafe.  We then walked around and looked at what was there.  When we got in to the gondola, I gazed down at where we hiked and what we went through.  I felt good when I looked at the mountain again from the bottom.  The car ride back felt awsome.
