Day 524, Monday August 3

Friday played golf 3 miles, it rained hard and didn't manage to do anything else.

Saturday was the start of the hiking trip. Comic and tragic, but fun. Bonnie woke up sick and was going to tough it out, but when she was also car sick just going for coffee she decided to stay home. Kat and I hiked up the Mt. Kinsman Trail, harder than we thought, but fun, nice views and even a water fall. Carried about 40 lbs and 3,000 feet of elevation gain for 4.5 miles. Actually hiked on the AT for .5 miles. Watched the sunset over the ridge and the moon rise over the pond.

Sunday Kat had about had it. A combination of rain in the forecast, being tired (not in the best shape) and wanting to spend some time with Alex. So we decided to hike out, took a side trip to North Kinsman on the way out 5 miles.

Monday walked 1 mile with Bonnie in the morning, ran 3 in the afternoon and walked 1.5 with Bonnie in the evening. Total: 5.5

Total: 18
AT: 1,738.5

Included a picture of Kat on the AT climbing toward North Kinsman, she is hiking toward Georga, only about 1,800 miles away :)

Feeling a lot better. Went for two walks despite the heat, for a total of 4.1 miles. Today I'm feeling a little like I might have overdone it, and the heat's supposed to be vicious, so I think maybe a light session on the exercise bike.

August: 6.9
year: 557.4
AT: 1272.4
