It took forever to come out of hibernation this winter and with practically every weekend occupied with personal commitments, there hasn’t been much to write about.
But those commitments have just about come to an end, the hibernation ended around May, and training has begun in earnest for the next lake in my Great Lakes Project. I’m bound and determined to train through the winter as it’s simply getting harder and harder and more and more frustrating having to start over ever Spring. If all goes well, I’ll be heading up to Lake Huron in the Spring and maybe even Superior in the Fall. I really want to be significantly stronger on these final two lakes since it looks like there could very well be some long days on the Canadian sides. I expect a couple of hundred mile days may be necessary.
If things work out, there may be a road trip to Acadia and Baxter State Park later this Fall. Some biking, running, and hiking in Acadia National Park followed by a climb back up the the summit of Katahdin. That would certainly be nice way to end the summer. Keeping my fingers crossed.
