Exercise Log 6.21.14 (Rachel Carson Challenge – Failure)
Flunked out of the Rachel Carson Challenge this year, had poor choice in footwear (used an old pair of boots I never used for hiking before due to concerns with mud and traction and their worn out soles were like hiking on sandpaper) and my feet were bloody and spent by the second checkpoint, after which I bowed out and hitched a ride back to my car. I only made it 18 miles out of the 34.7, little past halfway.
I consider all cardio to just be training for my general fitness goals including races and challenges like this, so I just look at this like another instance of training to failure. Had I done any training preparation though I would’ve found out the problem with my shoes, as well as the bag I used to haul my supplies with me (of course I brought too much thinking it’d not be an issue, but spending half the trek fumbling with the bag was a nuisance).
Lessons learned, I will be sure to try this again someday but only when I have the right preparation. I do however have this crappy Sheetz selfie to show for it, with me looking pretty much totally miserable.

Socialism WORKS! is a short website presentation I put together years ago with help from a friend. It is something of a snarky take on Socialism, critical of the advantages of Socialism from various origins of the idea.
