Three weeks until my hike!

My hike is 3 weeks from today. The fundraising is going as well as can be expected. I think it is easier for people to put the idea of donating on the back burner when the event is off in the future. My hope is that more people pledge as the hike gets closer. I plan another push to raise money and remind people who said they would pledge, but have not had the chance to do so.

I have not started a running program as I once intended. At this point, I don't plan to for fear of aches and pains associated with starting such a program. My goal is to continue playing golf and walking. I am able to play 9 holes in about 1:10 and 18 in about 2:25 while carrying my own bag. My hope is that I can shave 15-20 minutes per 18 off that time with my brother-in-law looping for me. I want to try a 54 hike in the next 10 days or so to see how I hold up.

The extended forecast is projecting great weather for the day of the hike. However, a 3 week weather projection is probably not the most reliable. I can only hope it is accurate.
