AZT Training – “Urban Hiking”

6.5 miles / 350′ elevation gain

Yesterday I spent two hours of my afternoon “hiking” along the Elliott Bay Trail carrying a 22.5 lb. pack.  Over the weekend I purchased new trail runners to wear during my hike along the Arizona Trail, so I decided it was time to test them out.  The first day of my thru-hike on the AZT I plan to hike 13.5 miles gaining over 3000′ in elevation.  After finishing this short hike, it looks like I have a lot of training ahead of me over the next few weeks.
