It Takes Some Grit

I posted this a few months ago in my personal project, but it was too perfect for the theme to not post again.

In February, I headed off to Tanzania to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro. While that would have taken a bit of perseverance in itself, I also broke out in a rash thing in response to some still unknown allergen. I climbed for three days more painfully itchy than I ever imagined possible - it definitely took some grit to make it to the top like that, but it was beautiful up there!

Well done - I daresay you didn't get sick, just itchy! They look horrifying! Wonder what it was!

You must have great stamina to withstand the itching that the rash caused and to then keep climbing...true grit :).

Powerful narrative to illustrate grit. That rash is really something...hope it goes away soon and you're feeling fine again.
