Nine weeks

Today marks nine weeks post surgery.  Not much new to report.  I went hiking again this past Sunday as part of our training for the Grand Canyon hike in September.  We did Mt. Mitchell which is the highest point in North Carolina.  To simulate the Grand Canyon experience, we started at the peak (~6600 feet) and hiked down to a campground that was at 3200 feet elevation and then hiked back out.  I did pretty well, I was pretty tired at the end though and I think the elevation near the top had a lot to do with it.  I still need to work on my stamina and energy, but I felt accomplished having completed this hike.
