Kicking butt and taking names

In light of busy and awesome day yesterday, coupled with impending long run today, I decided to skip church. Best decision ever. It meant that I could sleep in longer and that we could leave for our 12 mile run earlier.

Our run went so well! I might have gone a bit over the top with electrolytes and carbs, but it seemed to do the trick. Not only did I make it through the run, but I feel great now! Three cheers for gatorade and gu.

After shower and changing, I moved this buddy home for the summer. I can’t wait to haul it down to the lake and go for a paddle. I probably won’t happen pre-AT adventure though.

There is this great state park near here called Chain O’Lakes State Park. It’s exactly what it sounds like. I’m hoping to find an afternoon to head out there pre-MWF. Maybe some Sunday afternoon, I can drive over from Goshen.

The last thing that I had to make for AT trip was a boatload of trail mix. And a boatload I made; assuming 3 gallon bags full is the equivalent to a boatload

It contains:

  • Honey Kix
  • Nut mix: cashews, peanuts, almonds, etc.
  • Reese’s pieces
  • M&M’S
  • Raisins
  • Sunflower seeds

Yumminess. I can’t wait to get out there. 48 hours, and I’m in the car headed South!
