Hiking with: Andy

Notes: We aimed to do 6 miles today, but I overextended a muscle/tendon in my right leg and had some soreness coming up on mile 5, so opted to end early to avoid injury.

Beautiful weather, nice and cool with a slight breeze by the lake. Was really trucking for the first three miles, then stopped to eat something and lost momentum. Have to figure out how to prevent that in the future.

Highlights: Ate one of the best nectarines of my life on the trail this morning. The mountain laurel was riotous.
