I will be training for the next five months to do a very long hike in Yosemite in June and I will be raising money. I have done neither of these things before, hence the outside my comfort zone.
I will keep this blog updated with my progress and my pleas for money, so come back and read me every Sunday, since I hike on Saturday.
Yesterday, I bought the ugliest pair of shoes I have ever purchased in my life. A pair of very nice hiking boots (or so I was told and since I have never done this before I do have to believe what some people just tell me).
One thing that does concern me is that with my Team in Training packet I received a little green emergency contact thingie that I have to attach to my brand new ugly boots. It has the name of number of my emergency contact (my beloved) in case I fall off the side of a mountain or get eaten by a bear or something, they figure there is usually enough left of your shoe to identify you, cause after all what self respecting bear or mountain lion would eat your shoe?
Wish me luck.
