On Friday I had the day off work, and it was glorious! The weather was perfect. After my run, Paul and I went to our favorite diner right down the street. I got the usual: Coffee, orange juice, water, 2 eggs over easy, wheat bread, home fries, and bacon. I cleaned my plate before Paul was even halfway done with his Western omelette.
Then we headed to Boiling Springs to hike North on the Appalachian Trail. This is an area of the trail I used to run all the time, but I haven't been here in quite awhile. It was nice to revisit a place I used to spend so much time.
Paul has been wearing my Garmin and going on a lot of neighborhood walks during the day. He was excited to show me that he became a faster walker since the last time we hiked. (I am a really fast walker, and normally I have to slow down significantly when we hike together... which is kind of annoying. I inherited my fast walking skills from my mom!)
Well, he has gotten a lot faster (despite being on freaking chemo) and it was actually uncomfortable for me to keep up with him! I guess that's how he used to feel when I would walk too fast!
We got to walk through the horse field and the little buddies were out!
Susan, check out Paul's Colorado Pride!!
We did an out and back totaling 5 miles... and we didn't see a single snake!
Have you ever hiked on the AT? Come visit me! I will take you! :)
