If planning a hike near the GC visitors center, take the South Kaibab instead of the Bright Angel. A quarter of the tourists and better views. In my opinion, the only reason to take the Bright Angel is if you are planning to go all the way out to Plateau Point. Just be aware that you'll have to take a park bus, or park as close as you can to the road entrance and walk in.

Yaki Point is the best place to watch the sunrise.

The Skywalk is dumb and shouldn't exist. Don't waste your money.

There are so many great hikes in Sedona that it's really hard to pick.

Devil's Bridge is touristy AF, but it is beautiful. Fay Canyon is easy and fun to hike at sunset. Climb the cliff face at the end and look back through the canyon.

Did a 12 mile trail run this past weekend. 142 out of 182.

One more run to go on this damned Tough as Trails series, then I am NEVER running on a trail again.

In Sedona area I really enjoyed Cathedral Rock and Slide Rock State Park. Slide Rock State Park is like a natural water park.

I also like Slide Rock, but if he's going in a week or two, the water will be waaaaay too cold to enjoy.

Man, I feel fucking BEAT.

After basically a full week off, I came out Monday with a 9 miler. But I wanted to do a 10. So, it felt a bit like a failure. Then Wed, I did an 8 and felt completely exhausted.

This morning I hit a brick fucking wall in mile 4 and don't know how I managed to pull 7 out of my legs. I'm tired. My chest is tired. My legs are tired. Everything's tired. Having to walk up 10 flights because the elevator in my apt was broken when I got back from my run didn't help. :lol:

But jesus everything hurts right now. I feel like I ran a marathon and I've only done 24 on the week. :shake:

That's 24 more than most people.

Yesterday was day 100 of my gym/swim streak. Going to run shortly and that will be day 12 of my run/bike streak.

The Marquette Trails 50K is four months from this weekend and I'm starting to get hyped. TIL there are 4 significant climbs and 3 of them come in the last 10 miles. Hope my garbage body can withstand the training.

I probably won’t log much, but it will be something. Looking forward to just running. No distance or time goals. Just movement.

This streak thing was a good idea. Just what I needed to get my run on. Technically I am 15 days into my streak but my goal is 115+ and that should put me at 200+ gym/swim days if I can keep it up.

Digging the streak idea already. I got a measly mile today that I wouldn't have otherwise, and that was even with looking down the barrel of a day full of inventory/payroll, meetings, house hunting, dinner with siblings, and Game of Thrones viewing. So many opportunities to make excuses to not get some quick movement logged in.

Do we need to document using Strava for them to count? Or are we taking peoples word?
