Hardest hike yet

By Thomas Macauley on

Thanks to the Smiths for taking Henry to allow CopperPlate Design to focus on the YouthShakes site.  I could not have kept him busy for that long.

I could keep myself busy on a long hike.  Really pushed myself.  10# of water, egg, raisins.  Up&down.  Hike 43 of this new habit.

This was altogether harder than the climb from Lexinton to Lime Kiln to Priest Rock to the vista.

  1. I made it to hike/run 113 on May 26 and my tenth time to the El Sombroso peak. It is still a tough walk. Trying to run as much as possible, I still get the same elapsed time. If it is not a hot day, the round trip is okay without water and pack. A new app iSmoothRun tells me the total distance is 11.75miles, 2250 callories for my weight 169 lb, 3 hrs 13 minutes total time (inc 4.5 minutes net of rest), 2813 feet of ascents. 21,175 steps.
