Well the last couple of weeks have been rough food wise. Poor choices, my addiction is the cookie dough we sell at work. Man it taste a-maz-ing!! Pizza and coke are also an issue. I work in pizza and could eat it everyday, some weeks I do. Today was my anniversary so a lot if yummy meals and alcohol. I'm running another 10k dirty dash in September with my two teenage sons. So tomorrow begins the recommitment to my diet and the gym. I always tell people the easiest way to lose weight is to not gain it in the first place. I wish I would have lived by that when I was younger and making all kinds of bad dieting decisions. I wish I knew how to make myself a more determined person, I try and I hope that counts.

Looking at the distance (2.2 miles one way) and the elevation gain (570 feet) I thought it was going to be an easy hike with a gentle incline. It was actually a lot of up and down and some narrow trails. That being said it was still a fairly easy hike. We took a few breaks along the way and about a 30 minute break at the top. Just hiking time was around 60 to 90 minutes round trip. Had I been thinking ahead I would have brought more than one bottle of water per person, a lot of the hike is in direct sunlight.
