Rob Hill gives us an update:
It’s been a very busy time post Everest climb. I’ve gotten married and spent some important time with my family. I’m still waiting for it to sink in that I climbed the highest mountain in the world-Mt. Everest-and I’ve finished my 8 year quest to climb the 7 Summits-the highest mountain on each of the 7 continents.
I’m still reflecting on that journey and traveling around the world talking to different groups about the climbs on behalf of my sponsors, ConvaTec and Abbott Laboratories. It’s been an amazing journey, not just the climbs but also the opportunities to meet other people living with IBD and/or an ostomy to hear them talk about their lives and experiences.
Before I start to tell the world of my next adventures, I want to introduce some friends of mine. During my travels I have met many incredible like-minded individuals taking on different adventures around the World. I’ll be updating the blog more frequently with posts I’m going to call “Knowing Glory,” sharing stories of other people who have committed to not letting their ostomy surgery or fight with intestinal disease prevent them from living really great lives.
First I would like to introduce Agust. Agust sent me an email a while back about climbing with an ostomy. In that email he shared a few of his adventures with me. We share similar passions so I checked out what he was doing right away. Check out his blog Going Up and you will see why I like him so much.
