Zero in Bend
Total Miles: 11.2 Bonus Miles
Although it is an off day, I have many chores to do.
I was at the laundromat at 7:30 a.m.
I walked to the REI to buy new shorts, four freeze dried meals, and a new two liter bladder.
After walking back, I stopped off at the post office to mail some stuff home. From there, I stopped at the grocery store to buy the rest of the food I need.
The plan was to just relax for the day, but I got up and walked to the hardware store. I wanted to get on a scale.
Are you ready for this? I have now lost over 100 pounds since I first started to train for this hike! I lost 30 pounds training and another 70 pounds since I started.
I am now a normal weight. I haven’t been a normal weight since I was in my twenties.
This does create a small dilemma for me. I need to add calories to my hiking diet, so I’ve made an extra trip to the grocery store.
Still, I’m pretty jazzed about it.
Overall I walked over eleven miles for the day.
