I didn’t run Thursday.
I didn’t run Friday.
Instead, I spent Friday hiking a 1.5 mile (each way) trail with an elevation gain of 1200 feet and a final section that involved scrambling up rocks using hands and feet. The amazing thing is that both boys managed to make it as well, although I did carry Shoo on my back for about the last quarter mile or so.
That’s why I run.

Hmm. I've hiked in Virginia and this doesn't look much like Virginia. Gorgeous though!
Beautiful! And, I'm impressed that you were able to carry Shoo 1/4 mile… fit, indeed 🙂
EXACTLY! Sounds like a fun way to spend time with the kiddos!
Where are you?

Looks fantastic–where is it? I love hiking, especially with the kids. A great family activity.
Wow! Carrying Shoo on your back hiking is tough! I am doing a lot of hiking right now myself! Enjoy!
Beautiful scenery! That sounds like a great way to spend some quality time for sure!

Holy elevation! And with a child on your back – nice work.
