Actually tomorrow I should be running the Rio de Janeiro Marathon. But I found out too late that I need a visa to go to Brazil. So I had to cancel that trip. I learned an important lesson about international travel though. I doubt I will make that mistake again.
This afternoon I went up to Eklutna Lake and hiked all the way to Bold Creek. It was a beautiful day with a few short showers to make it more interesting. It has been quite a while since I have walked all the way to mile 5 and back. I always seem to turn back at mile 3. So it was nice to get in the 10 mile hike for a change.
