Virtual never felt so good.....
Thursday, March 12, 2015
I have synced my fitbit to catch up my virtual hike of the PCT. On day 3 there was this beautiful butterfly along the trail
Day 4 brought views of Lake Morena which is the base for Stage 2!
At the camp at stage 2 there was a welcome party going on with grilled burgers1 I bet those hikers were glad to see burgers instead of their freeze dried trail food! Gave me a new appreciation for the food I eat daily!
Here we go, starting Stage 2. The trail journalist had a photo of her foot complete with blisters received from the first few days of hiking. More appreciation - for my walking shoes!
Day 5 has me hiking along the trail. I put in 10.65 miles on day 5 - although nothing like the terrain of the trail! I took the dog out for a long walk. He had happy feet, but I must say mine were not so happy. After all that treadmill walking this winter, I think it is time for a new pair of walking shoes. My feet were throbbing a bit! I also noticed that the walk Tucker and I used to complete in about an hour took a bit longer! We both are feeling the effects of not many long outdoor winter walks!
So, 34.7 miles down....2,654.8 more to go!
I'm really enjoying this virtual walk! I have a new appreciation for my "soft" life!
