Today is the 33rd day before my 33rd birthday, and time to begin my birthday challenge.
Tom's challenge is to hike 41 miles along the Valley rim for his 41st (although I believe the current planned route is more along the lines of 50 miles). Our friend Rachel replaced 26 bad climbing bolts with good ones for her 26th birthday, and Hans has the mega 40th birthday challenge going. And you can find out more of the really crazy stuff that people have done on birthday challenges here – a whole website devoted to birthday challenges.
Here is my challenge:#1 – Average 33 minutes of drawing for 33 days.
#2 – A minimum of 33 push ups, 33 ab-rollers, 33 leg exercises and 33 crunches each day for 33 days.
#3 – climb 33 pitches that I haven't done before in 33 days.
#3.3 – cook 3 nice dinners using new recipes for Tom.
