So last night my team lost in the Elite Eight. So, along the lines of Seinfeld’s George Costanza, I decided to do the opposite today with my hike.
I did the hike in reverse direction of the way I normally go. And I got to see parts of the lake I didn’t before:
I saw this nice view of the lake I hadn’t noticed before.
I noticed that even though it is Spring, the trees still do not have leaves.
This is yet another view of the lake. It was a peaceful, calming and very enjoyable.
Looking back I am very surprised that I have kept up hiking so far in 2016. I am happy with my stamina, endurance, and that I am no longer sore after a 4.7 mile hike. Overall it has been a great experience for me. If you have the chance to start hiking, I encourage it.
I don’t have one of those fitbit monitors to see how many steps I am doing – it is more a competition with myself. I hope I can continue doing this. Maybe George Costanza is right, doing the opposite works.
