I just got back from an 8 mile hike at a place called Bears Den here in Virginia. It was quite the treck.
Let me explain quickly why I did this. My daughter is going on a 24 mile hike on the Appalachian trail this summer with some of the Young Women from the Church. Today was one of their training hikes. I volunteered to go as a chaperone and had a great time.
There were some steep hills to climb which really challanged my lungs, heart and legs and then going down those hills really challanged my leg muscles and joints. I am glad I did it and am also glad for Motrin :)
I hope everyone who lives in Northern Virginia is outside enjoying this gorgeous day. I hope everyone else is having great weather and is enjoying their weekend.
