Well, that was a hell of a trip. It was so damn beautiful. It was physically and mentally crushing, yet soul replenishing at the same time. But with all the planning one can do—when it comes down to it—plans never really go the way one thinks.
Be damned if I have to hike without coffee and Trader Joe’s mochi nuggets.
Training for hiking added a not-so-familiar element to my regular training. As in, it was time to suck it up and do the cardio training I never want to do. Mainly because I find it boring, but also, who has the time?
