    Best thread title ever! [winkthumb]

    Congrats to her for the run - if I had scenery like that to enjoy, I'd probably take up running too..

    I like hiking, but the running part didn't take with me. Was commenting to my wife that one of the potential downfalls of trail running versus hiking is that trail runners generally do not regularly check there back trail. But then again, not all hikers do either. I learned to check the back trail often and consistently. Also, when I hike, I am usually not in a hurry and want to stop and enjoy. I went on a difficult hike up three peaks with a bunch of military guys years ago. Those guys flew up the mountain. I did my best to keep pace. My one canteen was empty at the top and I was starting to cramp coming down. Since then, I carry more than enough water and stop even when I am not tired to hydrate and enjoy the view. Much more fun that way. It's a little slower, but a much more meaningful hike to me that way. I did that the second time I did that hike without the military guys.

    I think I walked 22 meters today.

    It was exhausting.

    I don't like DRIVING 22 miles even downhill. 22 mile run? Nope. Way to go Mrs. Hanzo.

    Few people in the US have WALKED 22 miles in any one day. :) I have done so, many, many times, but then I had lots of free time, too.

    yep, 8 lb of my "full on" 45 lb BOB is water. Guys who don't carry that much have never pushed hard or long, in rough terrain, with no support, while packing much weight, much less had hostiles around. It's not that unusual to need 2 gallons per day, staying adequately hydrated, when it's hot and there's high humidity and you need to stay at the top of your form.

    It's a tossup as to whether or not I bother to take/wear the 5 lbs of concealable armor. If it's cold, then it goes along. If it's hot, probably not. If it's mild weather, it'll depend upon how I feel.

    Went up a mountain once with 2 2L bottles of water, 1 1qt canteen and a liter of Gatorade. There was no resupply going up or coming down. I lugged the extra because I wanted at least enough for me and I knew my friend wasn't going to pack enough. Sure enough, I ended up giving him one of the 2L bottles. I didn't pack enough my first time up too. And I made sure we stopped often to drink and rest.

    Could have died on one of the small ledges up there when he panicked and froze. So no more with that guy. He actually got scared and froze up several times, but the ledge left me precariously at risk of a verrrryyyy long fall.

    Doing 22 miles or more in a day takes hard work/training and drive... Mrs Hanzo is a stud and I commend her for being able to do what she does all the time... offshore racing and such... jeesh.

    I have done many a ruck run and long range movement over various terrain more times than I can count.... but then I did not have a choice...uncle sam made me.... ;) Now I can say that today my movement time over terrain is much slower, but I would like to think I pick my routes a little better... getting older sucks.

    Yup... @Hanzo 's wife is one amazing woman... even more so in person... what Hanzo didn't tell you was that she was carrying Hanzo for the full 22 miles! :lol:

    Seriously though... just a suggestion... might want to carry some sea salt, I use Molokai salt we collected right off the rocks and high ponds, with you in a tiny zip lok... a pinch with water will clear up those leg cramps... just water alone won't replace the salts you lose... good advice taught to me by my Uncle on Molokai... he worked and sweated a lot... used to get bad leg cramps...
