My Y Story...


I’m a goal junkie. Setting attainable goals and going for it have been a lifestyle. The Y community has played an important part. A former partner suggested summitting Mount Rainier. Soon after, my 29 year-old daughter along with my friend, a cardiologist, joined me in this challenge. Reaching the top of this 14,410 ft. active, glacier covered volcano would require some major physical effort, especially for an old grandpa like me. I knew I had decent base conditioning and would have to ramp it up a bit so the climb would be possible, if not pleasurable. With the help of a Y personal trainer, we worked out a training schedule and routine. The summit day covered 16 hours of climbing and hiking with packs over steep ice and rock. I’ve found that working hard for a goal and obtaining it is the ultimate high. A mountain climb is the perfect metaphor for reaching personal goals. Lets do it! ~Franz
