Hiking Series Opener

With decent weather more or less already here, I’m planning to do a hell of a lot of hiking and camping over the spring and summer. Along with this, I’ll be doing a little write up, or review if you’d like, of each new hike I do and posting it in this category. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do but for whatever reason never got around to, but that’s going to change this year.

The tentative plan is to begin with Mount Lady MacDonald sometime next week with more to follow, so stay tuned!


A Lesson in Humility

The funniest thing happened while I was out for a run this morning. About midway through Bowness Park I ran past this little kid who was running around on the grass. Now normally this wouldn’t be in any way noteworthy, but soon after I passed him he started running behind me on the path. So there I was having a little chuckle about this fella following me, but his footsteps keep getting closer and closer, and then suddenly blows past me! He pulls ahead maybe 15m or so, and then dials it back to comfortably maintain his lead. This continued for a few minutes, after which he peeled off to return to his parents (presumably), who I then discovered had been watching the entire time and were laughing their asses off.

Nothing like getting showed up by a 7 year old to start off the day.
