I’ve been a bit out of it the past 2 weeks..I made the tough decision to give my foot a full week and a half off from any activity..and damn, I think it worked.

I ran today for the first time in about 2 weeks – an easy 3.5 miles out in the state park. I had barely any pain during the run and barely any after. I’ve only got 13 days until the half 21K so I’m going to try to get in two more 6 milers and either an 8 or 10 miler.

Tomorrow, however, is where the real fun is. I’m going out on my first solo bikepacking trip. In fact, this will be my first bikepacking trip and my first solo trip, period. I’ll try to get a map of the trip posted and a write-up first thing Wednesday morning. I plan on covering about 50 miles total, but it may end up being slightly more or slightly less. We’ll see!
