As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints I occasionally get to work with the youth of the church and do activities with them. Today I got to go on a hike with them to the peak of San Bernardino Mountain. The hike is pretty intense and long for a bunch of 12-15 year old boys, but we felt they were tough enough to do it. We started hiking at 5AM and made it to the peak at around 12:30. It was good to see the boys challange themselves and push through something hard. We got down the mountain at about 4:40 so the total trip was a little over 11 hours. My legs and feet hurt and my back was tired from carrying a pack all day. I had a great time and it was fun to even challange myself with hiking for such a long time.
I figure I am going to count this as a run because it was very challanging and was excellent training for the upcoming trail marathon Rhett and I are running in January.
