Last Saturday I did my first hike in over a year - in the hot humid wet soggy buggy Ocala National Forest. I know it sounds terrible, but it was a nice adventure and key for getting me geared up for a Colorado 14'er. And as usual, the people were the best part. I met up with a group of hikers from Meetup.com (hence the name) and didn't know a soul but made some excellent new acquaintances.
This morning I was back to the AM training session with 40 flights of stairs, two at a time, and a tromp through the park, all in my boots. I wish I had started a little earlier because... well... it was hot humid August in Florida. Can hardly wait to feel that dry CO mountain air!
