    Having a wonderful time in the Smoky Mountains. (pictures to follow once I get some tech support from my wonderful DH). Added 2.5 miles Thursday, even with the 6+ hours driving. Hiked 8.5 miles Friday and 11.75 miles yesterday on some beautiful trails, including a portion of the Appalachian trail yesterday. We'll see how our muscles respond this morning before we decide how ambitious we will be today.

    August total 109.25 miles

    Thank you for the kind words. I managed to make myself get out and walk today. I did 5.10 miles because the number on his ID tag was 510. Fitbit said I burned 514 calories, but I logged 510 :smile:

    Managed to get myself to a HIIT class and did 0.5 miles on the indoor track before it started. It was a good distraction.

    Oh Kar, I'm so sorry for your loss. :'( I know that after your 25+ year friendship you made the best and hardest decision for Merlin. Hang in there, it will always hurt, but you will be able to keep going.
