Hike No. 3 (June 12, 2010)

I went on my first hike with the meet up group. Stacey went with me and it was her second hike….EVAH! I was soooo excited to do this hike. It started badly and I could not figure out why. I got out of breath very quickly and just felt…..odd. the organizer stayed just ahead of us and was so nice to hang back. We sent him ahead and let him know if it was too much or a problem, we would simply turn back. He said to remember it is as 7k feet. I rested a minute and continued. All in all we went 45 minutes and that was it for me. I think I could have done more, but was not comfortable with how it was going. I keep trying to be sure to push hard, but not too hard and get injured etc. Well, in this case, I learned that the process is not going to go quickly or come as easily as I want it too. But what that is good, does? The people ROCKED! I really liked them and enjoyed the camaraderie after the hike. Up in the mountains, water and a nip in the air. Really a very nice time!
