It’s All Downhill From Here. Standing atop the icy summit I breathed a sigh of relief. We had done it. As I gazed out onto the horizon the feeling of isolation swept over me. The sound of my heavy heartbeat echoed in my ears; its steady, powerful rhythm was the only noise I could hear over the howling of the wind. All of my senses felt heightened as the exhilaration from the final push evaporated. I felt all alone, trapped inside my body. My legs transformed into tree trunks, nearly immovable with the buildup up lactic acid. Each step sent shockwaves through my feet as I commanded my reluctant muscles forward. The unrelenting sun continued to beat down heavy on my back, attacking me with sweltering heat and its blinding rays reflecting off of the snow. Gusts of cold, dry wind continued its onslaught, wreaking havoc on the exposed skin of my face; I didn’t stand a chance, but at this moment I didn’t care. Standing tall and proud, I slowly turned in a circle to take it all in. I knew that no matter where I looked, my gaze reigned down from above. I was atop of the world with nothing challenging my prominence for as far as the eye could see.
