If anyone knows who Bill Bryson is, you’ll know I stole that title from him. But it’s appropriate here, because the whole family took off for a great hike Saturday on the Appalachian Trail. We’re so lucky to live so close to it–we can be to various sections of it within an hour’s drive.

This was my first time trying my Merrell Pace Gloves for a hike and I have to say, I don’t know how I ever hiked in my old, stiff, clunky shoes! It was so nice to get the ground feel from the Pace Gloves. If you have the old kind of hiking shoes, I highly recommend pitching them in favor of something minimal!
Now, the flipside of the hike. It wasn’t my smartest move for healing feet. I went for about a 40-mile bike ride in the morning and then followed it up with the hike. As much as I enjoyed all the activity, my feet paid the price. I’ve got to reel myself in now or running won’t happen any time soon. I don’t regret this time with my family because it was a great day out there. But I guess intelligence when it comes to my feet, isn’t my strong suit.
Hope you had a great long weekend!
