It’s All Uphill

Today I learned, again, to pace myself and to eat! 

Lava and I climbed a big honkin’ mountain.  OK, big for me, and it was harder than when we did the same one five years earlier.  Why?  Age?  Really?  Maybe.  It took me a while to figure out that it was a combo of going way too fast without breaks and not eating part of my delicious lunch that I was “saving” for the big payoff at top.  Silly.
