Sorry to be out of touch for a few days. Teaching these Wilderness First Responder courses always leaves me beat. Only four days of talking eight hours a day and I’m off the diet soda wagon. I ran on a treadmill after class yesterday at an 11% grade. I’m using the word “run” loosely. All I can say is that it’ll be interesting to see how a 12,600 foot pass compares to running on a treadmill in a hot basement room with music blaring and multiple TVs showing local news, the USA network, and a reality show. I’m looking forward to getting outside tomorrow morning.
