Hey, @Challengers! I could use some company next Sunday, 12/12 on a fast hike of the Pseudo Skunk Cabbage half marathon course—my final course of the Challenge. My calves have been acting up when I run, with the most recent incident being 4.5 miles into an easy 6-mile run. So I don’t dare attempt Pseudo Skunk running because no matter how easy I go, it’s all too likely the calves would lock up midway and force me to stop.
So my plan is to hike the course, which means something between 16- and 20-minute pace. I’m estimating about 4 hours for the full 13.1 miles, which clearly calls for mid-route chocolate. Anyone up for joining me? I’d like to start in the morning—perhaps 8 AM—but am flexible on that. In particular, I see some folks who could use Pseudo Skunk for their 8th, 9th, or 10th course too—hint, hint!

Who’s in? Or will I just have to catch up on a zillion podcasts?
