I am getting ready.
I regularly do 7.67 miles in the morning. I have a route around some reservoirs here in the city (though most people living in Seoul would say I live in the "country"). My FitBit tracks the miles. I am down to getting the distance done in close to two hours... usually a little more (2:05), occasionally a little less (1:55 is my record). This past Saturday I "hiked" 20.39 miles in 5 hours 39 minutes 40 seconds, at an average of 16 minutes 36 seconds per mile... most of it on street sidewalks or paved walking pathways.
I felt good afterwards... certainly after taking in some "Vitamin I".
I am working on losing more weight. Fifteen years ago, I was pushing 300 lbs... Five years ago, I was steady at 265 lbs. Two years ago, I got serious and have been at or around 210 lbs. for some time now. Last I weighed myself I was 203.4 lbs. I am working towards the 180 lbs. region for the beginning of the hike in March/April of 2018. Most of this is because I live in the ROK where dairy and "large quantity meat products" are expensive and/or hard to come by. (Six weeks home in the summers mean a gain of 10 lbs.) I have also done what I sometimes do too easily, question the underlying assumptions, in this case the "three meals per day" paradigm. Growing kids... yes. Older adults, maybe not.
The Next Step...
2650 miles... from Mexico to Candida. The Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) is a journey of heat, cold, wet dry, heights and depths... of terrain and emotion.
