walking in the rain  
Here in the Pacific Northwest, if you don't like to hike in the rain, you probably won't hike at all.  And we are having a really crappy spring so far. It's been cold and rainy most of the time. Today was partly sunny all day...until we got out into the middle of Banner Forest. Then it started pouring rain!  Just one of those things. Luckily, we've been outfitting ourselves for exactly that sort of weather - quick dry shirts and pants and rain jackets and such. so even though we got wet out there, buy the time we were making our stop at Fred Meyer on the way home, my clothes were pretty much dry. Nice!  We were inspired to go out into the woods today when our latest order from REI showed up: my waist pack (with water bottles) and two sets of hiking poles.  

I haven't been doing the Wii fit as much as I should do it - when I'm working I'm just too tired to even want to bother. But I did it today and it says I've lost 2.4 pounds.  I knew I'd lost some weight because I've had to buy pretty much all new clothes - everything was too big and looked terrible! And I haven't bought new clothes in a long time, everything was looking pretty dumpy anyway. New clothes are nice.  I felt really good walking out in the woods today too. I started to get winded at first, but pressed on and by the end, I was keeping up with Greg and feeling fine! Hurray! Nice to not feel like a sloth on the trail! 

Happy trails!
