Not so much of a hike through the wilderness, but a trek nonetheless!! I attended a fundraising event yesterday to benefit Alzheimer’s research, and part of it was a walk through a developing cul-de-sac and adjoining nature trail.
That’s what I do I hike I drink and I know things shirt
What I didn’t realize until we were already in the group start was that this was a two-mile trip across crushed oyster trails and an old airport tarmac, and I hadn’t stopped to put my boy’s boots on. Asher is my service dog. He is almost always by my side, and he helps to keep me healthy. So, of course, I have to ensure that the stays healthy as well, which includes ensuring that his paws don’t get burnt on 100°+ asphalt. He did great for most of the trip, and we stayed off the track in the dirt, but once we hit those runways even MY feet were getting toasty in my shoes. That’s what I do I hike I drink and I know things. So this is how we crossed the finish line. I lugged his fifty-pound butt over the last quarter mile and to the end, and we got some great reactions from it.

But he’s my partner, and so not only does he have my back, but I’ve gotta have his. I seriously felt like I was standing at the top of the world today. I couldn’t help but feel grateful that I’m healthy enough to do hikes like these, that I live in a location close to natural beauty like this, and that I’ve intentionally surrounded myself with loving and supportive friends and coworkers. Feeling full of gratitude and thankfulness today
