Althought not exactly a hike, I put about 12 miles on my feet yesterday in Richmond. It was a great test of my post-surgical foot, and 6.2 miles of it was for the Monument Avenue 10K. With 41,000 runners and walkers, that is one of the largest foot races in the United States. Of course, for most participants, we are just racing against ourselves, out there to enjoy the experience. Richmond is a pretty place in the spring, the race is a great spectator event, and I put lots of photos and the story of the day here on my other blog. If you read far enough down in that post, you will learn the tale of the courage and determination that I witnessed yesterday, and which will always be with me!
My vision is to describe hikes that I have taken. These will be sporadic, so if you like this blog, you may want to subscribe. If a lot of time goes on between hikes, then maybe I will write something about hiking in general, or describe an older hike from days gone by.
