Been enjoying this blog today (it’s about the Appalachian Trail if you didn’t click on it right away). I read about it on RunningTimes website. The pictures are great, and the hiker seems pretty down to earth. My friend Melissa hiked it. Yes, badass doesn’t even begin to describe 6 months of hiking and carrying a 50 pound pack. A marathon is over in the blink of an eye compared to that, and even a 100 miler is nothing compared to months. Actually, after I read how heavy the packs are, I questioned if it was for me. Mike and I have a visit and a section hike on our bucket lists. Guess it’s on Jasper’s too.
