Walked my errands Saturday afternoon all over Arlington. The afternoon’s weather was hot and sticky, but I had fun seeing various friends along the way. I really felt like Forrest Gump. 5.5 miles in all, and very productive. I got to see Julie and pick up some goodies from her, I took care of a few phone calls, and I stopped in at Casual Adventure to get a map and some of those attractive pants that have zippers around the knees to transform them into shorts. The guys there have been supportive of the Crooked Trail 100 and were full of well wishes.
Sunday morning Karen and I walked about the same distance with a pit stop at Northside Social. Conversation with Karen is endless and never feels like enough. She is so fun and positive, I love our walks. So does Fenway.
Jason and I have been talking, texting and emailing back and forth about all sorts of last minute “needs”. We ran into each other at REI stocking up on bars, goo and snacks. I am making Crooked Trail granola for us, he is making G.O.R.P. and bars. Yum.
Logistics for dropping our necessities at different points are falling into place… we are just about ready to hike!
A must share… one of my favorite singer/songwriters, Martin Sexton, signed my Crooked Trail 100 postcard. Thanks, Julie!!!
