We all love Monday’s right….
Have I ever told everyone, that I L-O-V-E adventuring?!?!
I know many years down the road when I’m done chasing Strava segments, when I’m done trying to smash PR’s, and I don’t quite have the speed that I have today, I’m going to happily transition to full time adventuring. I posted last week about some summit chasing adventuring I did last weekend. It really reminded me how much I enjoy leaving the “racing” training behind and just spending some time being out in nature. My coach was putting a little adventure together for yesterday and at first I wasn’t going to join. When the guys started talking about how awesome this run was going to be, it got me jonesin to join. So I did some negotiating (ok I was begging lol) with Mrs. Schlub and she allowed me to go out and play with my friends lol.
We met up at a trailhead about 30 minutes from my house. I’d never been out in this section of desert before so it was immediately great views and the excitement to see what lay ahead. We got a little bit of everything while we were out this day…
1) About 6 miles of true trail running
2) Some steep hiking
3) Hand and foot vertical scrambling
4) Epic summit views
5) Lost at the summit and how to safely get back down
6) Poop my pants descents down said vertical scrambling
7) Stories and memories that last a lifetime
