Whaaaaaaat? I have asthma?
After the Quandary incident I was more defeated than ever. Here I was a newfound lover of the mountains. I had a real passion for it. And I couldn’t do it. Something was wrong with me. Maybe I could never be at altitude. Maybe I would never be “fit” enough to climb above 10,000 feet. Maybe I was a loser to ever think I had any right to be out there in the first place. (Negative self talk, its a peach, ain’t it?)
