78. Skydive

fullsizeoutput_353

I’ll preface this post by saying that I usually tell people that I’m not afraid of heights, they just make me uncomfortable. I lie… I’m absolutely afraid of heights. And that is exactly what made skydiving such a desirable experience for me.

There is nothing more exhilarating to me than going head to head with my fears and coming out on top. I even surprised myself with my lack of nerves leading up to the jump. It was only after doing a gainer out of the plane, free falling at 120mph, and descending with the parachute deployed that the adrenaline wore off and I began to feel nauseous. The brain is funny isn’t it?

My instructor, Tadas, was great and Skydive Baltimore made the jump an awesome and scenic experience. Thanks to my brother Collin for being the only one I know willing to do it with me! Rating: 9/10
