July 29th, 2016 ~ Day 126
A beautiful rainbow to the west and the sun rising in the east as I started hiking this morning. A beautiful way to stay the day. Before I even left the house, I heard thunder. A little worried because it’s monsoon season, and I wasn’t in the mood to hike in the rain.
Luckily it wasn’t raining. The dark clouds were off in the distance. It made for a cool breezy morning. I climbed to the top of Shaw in a half an hour. A lot better than I’ve done in a long time. I was determined to get at least two and a half miles in.
Yesterday I added up all the miles I’ve hiked since this journey began. I’ve only hiked 390 miles so far. I decided I’m going to push this challenge even harder and go for a total of 1500 miles. Which will mean I need to hike approximately 4.7 miles a day or 139 miles a month.
365 days and 1500 miles, I can do it! Wish me luck!
