Weekend with friends in the highlands of Virginia...long drive to get there but well worth it! I didn't think I was up for a 14 mile hike, but we did it, and another on Saturday for 10 miles! Amazing what the energy of a group can do for me. To take care of blistering feet, lots of tape, and moleskin...at home self care includes soaks and cooling lotions. Lots of gentle touch surrounding the areas. Biking instead of walking for a few days.
What a treasure the foothills of the smokies are!!
There are lots of trails in Ohio...a good reason to get moving!
