The LST is Calling

I'm coming for you LST...it's all a matter of time...

Mileage for last night's downtown walk was over 3 miles...probably closer to 4. It was certainly a challenge because I pushed myself to jog more this time, even uphill. I hope to make the town walk/jog a standard for at least two days of the week, and then I'll walk my neighborhood the rest of the days during the week. Oh and of course I'll still have my Sunday hikes to look forward to as well.

But all this walking enjoyment isn't just for kicks or exercise, it's good training for walking miles and miles on the LST(Lone Star Trail), which is 128 miles of trail that goes through the Sam Houston National Forest. I've been reading a hike log by a woman nicknamed "Nocona" http://www.trailjournals.com/entry.cfm?trailname=3965 who writes of adventure on the LST. It sounds like a great challenge and she is an inspiration to me. The LST obviously has to be done in sections and will take a long time to complete, but the reward of knowing I did it will be sweet.
