What I Did Last Summer

Yes, that is me and yes, that is historic Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin.  As part of a fundraiser for Special Olympics - Wisconsin, I was able to repel down the side of Lambeau field, making the "Ultimate Lambeau Leap!"  It was quite the experience for someone like me who has an acute fear of heights.  After training inside on a one story repel, we went up 7 floors in an elevator, up a flight of stairs to the rooftop and finally up a steel ladder to the top of the elevator shaft to start the repel of 140 feet.  Never was I even given the chance to back out which is good, because had they asked, I may have not done this.  Watching beforehand really scared me!!  Fortunately, we were working with a professional team who repel into hard to reach places for a living.  They are highly trained and safety conscious people who always made me feel safe. 

Safe and sound at the bottom!
