I left work about 3:30 today at the urging of a couple friends and made it to Old Town in time to catch the racers. This first group was past in a flash. I took the picture on the corner of Woodworth and Second. It was amazing, quite a deal.
Third day on the treadmill with my backpack, it's getting easier. 35 minutes, 1.25 miles.
I hope to do The Big Walk 2009 this summer with some guys from church. I spent some time on our treadmill today with my backpack on. I had it loaded with 20 pounds of sand. The plan is to hike into Evolution Valley with options to do some local peaks for those so inclined. I figure after hiking 18 miles in I will be looking to be reclined on a nice foam pad with a good book.
