Torch - AT - Aug 1, 2011 - Day 118: Mental Game
{endlocation= Brink rd

Its too hot in the morning to cook breakfast. I think I am going to go back
to my carnation and oatmeal mix. I awoke in the morning with the full blast
of the sun shining onto my tent from the mountain top. Before i could get
change and out of my tent i was dripping with sweat. I ate a granola bar
and took my last deoxycycline for lyme disease. One less thing to worry
about, also that pill bottle was huge and taking up mucho (intentional
spanish) space in my medicine zip lock bag.

On the trail by 10am and right away i could tell it was going to be a hot
one. I was not happy when i found myself needing to stop a rest every mile
or two. By six miles i was so tired i decided to break for early lunch. I
ate a salami and velveta cheese sandwich while listening to the last chapter
of Jane Eyre. I almost shed a tear at the reunion of Jane and poor crippled
Edward. As I was finishing up lunch 5 o'clock came strolling in. He had
spent the weekend at his Uncles House near the water gap. I hike with him
for most of the 10 miles to the shelter. His pace is much faster and I had
to make extra effort to keep up. After awhile i found that I could maintane
the pace and that I just needed a kick in the ass to remind me how slow my
pace has been as of late. Hiking by myself through most of PA was really
mentally breaking me down. I need to try to maintane my focus and really
take advantage of this experience. I have been down on myself for the last
few weeks and not putting in my best or even mediocre effort. I am enjoying
the NJ section of trail and look forward to the rest of the hike with new
found zeal and excitement. I got to the shelter and found 5 o'clock and
Lewis and Mark expedition (Like Lewis and Clark) two southbound hikers. We
chatted over dinner about what to expect in our respective hikes. That was
probably the most coversation I have had on the trail in three weeks. Its
nice to see people once again. Time for bed. I have some pics i would like
to post if I can get a good enough signal. Also, Happy 11th Birthday to my
nephew Nate!
