Wow. That's pretty cool.
I used to get winded crossing the parking lot to get into the office. Going up a hill - even if it was just walking over a speed bump - meant instant sweating and sucking in air like it was going out of style.
And yet here I was crisscrossing through the woods with a smile on my face and easily breathing in the fresh air.
Knowing I could do this full 12 miles and not fall down in a heap of blisters, sweat, and broken muscles gives me a lot of hope for the rest of the summer. I see lots more scenic hikes in my future and am so looking forward to being active and strong this summer.
In the meantime, here are a few pics from the journey. I hope you all had a great weekend too!
