I Came, I Saw, I Conquered.

One of my favorite landmarks in Charleston is the Ravenel Bridge...yes a bridge. It's soooo beautiful and architectural....all that! It's so high that my ears pop because of the elevation, so you can imagine how hesitant I was when saying yes to my co-workers idea of walking the ENTIRE thing at 8-ish this morning! Here's a little bit on the bridge via, yes you know it, Wikipedia:
The Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge, also known as the New Cooper River Bridge, is a cable-stayed bridge over the Cooper River in South Carolina, connecting downtown Charleston to Mount Pleasant. The eight lane bridge satisfied the capacity of U.S. Route 17 when it opened in 2005 to replace two obsolete cantilever truss bridges. The bridge has a main span of 1,546 feet (471 m), the longest among cable-stayed bridges in the Western Hemisphere. -Wikipedia
Here is my view after we finished:

There were so many people out and about this Sunday morning from all walks of life.  I kid you not there were a couple of 50+ year old men and women that had me re-thinking my workout plan.

I plan to jog this baby in the weeks ahead...if you don't see any know what!


  1. Girl you are so crazy! That bridge is way too beautiful for people to be driving their polluting cars I might even be motivated to walk a few steps on it. Did you get some sneakers for walking? Anthony has me on a health kick now..smh. But I'm trying, thanks for the motivation!

  2. Thanks Tawanda! You are so sweet! I miss you chick!
