A seriously impressive feat nonetheless

Fans of the Good Morning America host know how she'll go through great lengths to make sure she doesn't miss a good run, and even while on vacation the commitment doesn't falter.

While Amy was quick to familiarize herself with Sydney and shared pictures of her first run in the city shortly after arriving, she later confessed she might have taken things a bit too far.

The news anchor shared with fans how her latest feat took a turn for the worse, as she attempted the impressive journey of hiking Mount Kosciuszko, one of the world's seven summits, the highest mountains on each of the seven continents.

While it sounds like a daunting task, the mom-of-two admitted she initially thought – given her extensive fitness training – that the hike wouldn't be much of a challenge.

However, she went on to detail how she wasn't as prepared as she thought, and her expectations were promptly proven wrong.

The ABC star explained in her caption that: "We thought this was going to be a walk in the park - our 2nd of the 7 summits - Australia's highest peak! But during our 13 mile hike we faced 50 mph gale force winds for more than 3 hours and we were not dressed for the weather - definitely some level 2 fun that felt pretty miserable."


Amy had a great support system as they all faced the tough challenge

Luckily, and impressively, the crew made it, and fans were quick to flood her comment section with support. They commended her for her impressive endurance, writing: "Wow. Double congratulations! Sounds brutal…" and: "Congratulations! Keep inspiring!" as well as: "Fabulous adventure! You all are incredible! Stay safe."

The television journalist went on to share a heartfelt tribute to their experience as she posted more pictures from the journey, writing that: "Our epic Mt Kosciusko adventure gave us a weather boomerang but we were all braving it together!!! Warm and sunny down below, brutally windy and cold at the top… Love how the tough times become the best memories in life."
