Write Up:

As I sit here sipping on some of Athens finest brew...I reflect back on a great evening of hiking/training. We got 10.2 tonight, as I totally missed a small section in the middle that was just a short out and back out crop...but we finished right at 3 hours. I'm happy to say we'll be getting out there a half an hour later so we don't have to RUSH so bad to get there after work. The bad part was we had one withdrawl at the 2.2 mile mark (another reason I do some swithbacks a few times near the begining) and a twisted ankle...the ankle wasn't bad and the hiker with it proceeded to complete the route (minus a couple of short, yet STEEP sections to be safe). Kudos to all, and I hope to see more people that want to up their overall trail fitness with these QuickStep formatted hikes...start with the 5.5, try the 8.6 and then the now infamous 10.4! Before you know it you'll be doing D7's in your sleep! Until next time - cheers
