I’ve gone to Comic-Con every year since I was about 18 years old…except for the last three. However, to make up for my not being able to get tickets my best friend Stefanie always accompanies me to San Diego to partake in what we can absorb in the city itself while Con is on. This year, Fox set up a promotion for Gotham that was zip lining past the Gotham skyline.
Heights have never thrilled me, but I do like to think that when I set my mind to do something I can and will do it. I was intrigued a few days ago when I found out about the zip line, and when I got to the park I really, really wanted to do it - and Stefanie agreed to do it with me.
Together, Stefanie and I waited about an hour and a half to get to the front of the line and get our chance at zipping through Gotham. Let me tell you, by the time we were ready to be hooked into our harnesses the anxiety was great. As we waited near the top the tower shook each and every time a rider got to the bottom of the line and both Stefanie and I had moments where we asked ourselves why we were doing this.
The platform was about three stories up, and as the technician hooked me to the line I questioned out loud wether I’d be able to take the step off the platform. But I DID. And I am so proud that I did.
I may have screamed the whole way down (I mean how else was I supposed to relieve the anxiety), but I zip lined!!!!!
I am beyond proud of myself for actually doing this and not chickening out when I reached the top. And I am so glad my best friend didn’t make me do it alone.
