The Thing I’m Doing This Year

The thing I’m doing this year is hiking. I want to beat my best time to Barr Camp, which is the halfway point to the top of Pikes Peak.

Hiking faster in 2014 at the age of 51 than I did in 2006 will be harder to do than running a marathon or the century. I used to think nothing of getting up at 4:30 a.m. on a Sunday morning to go for a hike or hopping into an ice bath. Older, wiser Charlie is not prepared to do that again.

Right now, this goal looks impossible. But we’ll see.
