Going for a hike!

On Saturday I get to hike the Appalachian Trail for a few days! My brother is thru hiking the whole thing (2300 miles!), so J, Sydney and I are going to join him for a few days! He's been gone since the beginning of April, so Sydney is very excited about seeing her man again, and I'm excited about seeing my brother! 
 We'll probably be hiking 8-10 miles a day, then camping out in our tent at night. I'm so looking forward to it! 
  J and I went to Cumberland Falls a couple months ago, and went on a 2 mile hike. I totally felt like I was going to die! Which kind of surprised me, since I run so much, I thought I was in a little better shape than that! But this will be much more than a 2 mile hike, and I'll be carrying a heavy backpack too!
 But I LOVE a challenge! I love pushing my body beyond what I thought it was capable of. I have to remember that whatever I think I can do- I can do way more! Where I think my limit is- it's just a choice, give up or push on! And the more I push, I'll begin to realize that my potential is truly limitless!
 Pics to come!
