    Cooper River Bridge at night

    Cooper River Bridge at night

    For some reason, many have a fear of heights or of being over water or being on a bridge. Overcoming these kinds of phobias can be difficult. One of the ways I’ve seen work in the past in getting over the Cooper River Bridge is to approach it in increments and to do it with someone you trust. 

    This year, I’m working with an athlete who would like to run the Cooper River Bridge Run, yet she has never run on the bridge. We’ll spend time on Sunday afternoons between now and then in walking portions of the bridge. Last time we walked from Mount Pleasant to the North Tower and back. This week we walked to the center and back. Next week we’ll start from the Charleston side and go the South Tower and back.
