Does this count?

This totally counts. Welcome Banjo, hope you are doing well! Smile

Every muscle in my body is screaming. I don't even remember using my arms much. Strange how that works :/

Oh well. Protein drink and early to bed Big Grin
Wow, 8 hours of climbing? That's exhausting even when there's no snow. Sleep well! Smile

It wasn't originally the plan. We were just gonna go halfway up then mess around on the trails, going back and forth between skiing/boarding and training. But one of the guys decided he wanted some of the clam chowder from the food shack at the top. We probably wouldn't have paid much attention to him except he has a thick Boston accent so we started making fun of him until our little hike spontaneously turned into a quest for chowdah. When we finished the clam chowder it was barely passed noon and we had until 4 to get back to the Humvees so we figured what the hell let's ski down and do it again for bragging rights. The combination of random chowder quests and platoon competition is an interesting motivator.

I grew up near Boston. Now you have my mouth watering for some of that "chowdah"! Drooling (I lost most of the accent years ago, but it does tend to return when I visit in Massachusetts. Smile )

@DonaldTrump, Patriotism is not honoring your flag no matter what your country/leader does. It's doing whatever it takes to make your country the best it can be as long as its not violent.

Same here Smile I still have my accent, but it does come and go now that I live in CA. When I talk to my friends and family back home, my accent comes right back in full force. My bf also says it comes back in full force when I get tired or mad Laugh out load

RE: Atheists who work out
Got a later start to my run tonight, but it went awesome. Ran only a little over 4 miles, but ran like I stole it. lol Wink

I hate running in the dark. Really hate hate hate it. Idk...I just feel like an animal will come out of the woods and attack me. Probably a silly concern, but it makes me run faster. Unsure

I probably shouldn't run with my ear buds, because it's true...at night...we should be aware of what's happening around us, even more so than a day run.

Be true to yourself. Heart

I agree. I don't run with my ear buds at night. I run with my 105 pound German Shepherd and no one bothers me Big Grin I also bring this with me at night:

I'm the opposite. I love running at night. But your fears are not completely unfounded, depending on where you're at Tongue. I never run with noise isolating ear buds, and I do hear animals from time to time. I kind of like the feeling that I'm being watched lol.

That said, this is a well known incident in Canada...

It's rare but it happens. And apparently she was wearing a Walkman.

RE: Atheists who work out
I would also recommend taking a self-defense course. It is really helpful experiencing how much force is needed to ward off someone bigger and stronger than you--and learning pressure points and fighting techniques. I feel a lot better about being places at night by myself after taking my Krav Maga classes.
