We took the family on a hike yesterday. There is a three mile canyon trail near our house and our rather lofty goal was to hike the whole thing. Six miles round trip. We packed lunches, water bottles, the double jogger and headed out.
It was hot. Really hot. It was 98 degrees.
We only made it halfway before all the kids were moaning so much that we threw in the towel and turned around. They had drained their water bottles and were beet red, so we figured we’d better quit before we had to carry them out.
But, it was pleasant. I actually got a decent work out for the first time in… freak, my memory doesn’t go back that far. I have set a goal to hike the entire trail sometime before the end of the year. It is time to decrease my girth by, oh 35 pounds or so.
