Hiker's Remorse

It's like Buyer's Remorse, only worse. Instead of ending up with a new item of clothing or shoes that you may not be fully capable of walking in, you end up with incredible muscle and joint soreness. Eventually you'll forget about the remorse of your purchase; it will become a distant memory. But the soreness doesn't go away...Okay, so it does. I guess Buyer's and Hiker's Remorse are similar in that regard. But, whereas you'll probly soon be reconciled to your new purchase and even end up liking it, chances of you deciding you're glad you put your body through pain and suffering are slim to none. 
Seriously, I was half-way through this 3 hour hike, when I remembered/thought to myself, I hate hiking! Why did I think this would be fun? I like to work-out, but I don't like to climb rocks. Especially when I went ahead with the boys cuz the girls are too slow. Hiking is lame.
I need to remember this, or come re-read this post or something, next time someone invites me to hike. I'll say "Thanks-but no thanks. How about we go run 5 miles instead. That's more fun."

And Nicole; I'm sorry. I know you think things like hiking and mountains are cool. I hope we can still be friends.

Barb, my love. I'm not leaving forever, I just can't find time to post something witty and catchy onto my blog, much less snap a picture, download it, photoshop it and post that too. Even now as I write this, it's 7 in the morning, I've been up for 2 hours and am about the head up to campus, not for school, but for many many other things. it's not you barb, it's me....(and when I say a while, i mean like a week).

I can understand why you don't like hiking because you haven't been hiking with me and Nicole yet.

Just like the Church and paved roads lead you to the temple, so can hiking lead you to the temples of creation.

There should be a snow shoveling remorse to. I definitely am feeling it! Too bad you don't have to worry about that down there!

But maybe you at least got to flirt with some cute boys on the hike?? Maybe??
