Hey...this isn't so bad

So I have been training over these past few weeks and this walking thing is too bad. I actually find it quite enjoyable. I have only been walking by myself, but it gives me "me time." I have time to think over things and enjoy the beautiful scenery of north campus while listening to some of my favorite tunes. Furthermore, I am happy to know that my backpack doesn't feel like 100 pounds on my back. Quite frankly, it feels like much of nothing, at least on my back, which was a big concern of my that I don't have to worry about now. I am so looking forward to this hike and cant wait for the next 5 weeks to past!

Six weeks to go!

The countdown is on and I can't stop thinking about this trip. Excitement, nerves and even a little fear keep me from concentrating on work. Here are some inspirational photos to help motivate us all to "train in the rain".
