this was pretty much me today.
i went on an evening hike with a couple friends tonight down in crystal cove. it was beautiful and the weather was perfect! i climbed (uphill) the WHOLE way and was just about dying. anyone who knows me knows that i dont hike often - probably average once a year. and when i do, i mostly complain the whole time. but when it is over i LOVE it and am always sooo happy i went. well....today i got to the top of the climb overlooking laguna and the pacific ocean and my knee popped. kind of like it did when i was in europe (i know - such my luck). and what is retarded is that it hurts even worse going DOWN hill instead of up. i hobbled along for a bit, but when it came time for our descent....dont worry. my fellow hikers carried me. yes. on their backs. and shoulders. one of these saints was even a girl who carried me for a bit. good friends. i am a disaster. at least my knee is feeling better now that i am home and not out in the wilderness. probably wont hike again until next year. or may possibly skip a year.
