Getting in the holiday spirit
By octav on Dec 15, 2007
A splendid day.
In the morning I ran 10 miles at Sawyer Camp (a place, a mile away from civilization, that is truly awesome). I am hoping to exercise every single day in the next couple of weeks. Perhaps I can get in better shape and start training for a more significant trekking trip. I was talking to a friend a couple of days ago about going to the Himalayas. I hope I'll be able to convince him to go with me next year to the Everest Base Camp (17600 feet). I've been also thinking about Mont Blanc. I talked to Petr Blaha about attempting the summit in the summer of '07 and I could not pull myself together. Perhaps I could make this a team event and get more folks involved.
On a different note, I went shopping, in the early afternoon, with my eldest daughter and ran into a concert of the Menlo Middle School Choir. The kids were great. They sang a bunch of Christmas and holidays songs filled with joy and enthusiasm. I love it.
