I’m 15 weeks out from stepping on the trail.
I’d been strapping on my pack and taking training hikes in the NC mountains until it got coldish and dark and I got busy with indoorsy things—researching gear, making freezer bag meals, bingeing on Goliath and Catastrophe.
And studiously avoiding anything that would prepare my physical self for a 2,000 mile hike.
I’m embarrassed by the butt-shaped indentation in my sofa and have only recently realized...
The shit’s about to get real!
So I'm getting real about my training plan.
