Because this is the first day of my Appalachian Trail Hike Plan-and-Prep year.
I celebrated by running, a New Year's Day tradition for me. This is only the second time I've run in the 4 weeks since the Austin marathon and I only ran half an hour. But I have got to get back into running shape, to train for SavageMan. I've already picked up my biking by riding home from as well as to work, now that it stays light an hour later.
I took a bag on my and collected 3 of those super-tall beer cans, to make a windscreen for my camp stove (which is made from a Pepsi can.) The more free garbage I can recycle into useable gear, the better.
New Year's Resolution: Do one thing each day to prepare for my hike. I'm gonna do it this time. I can feel it.
