Just another single 30-year old Argentine girl living the American dream in Washington DC and trying to run faster. Graduated from Southern Utah University in 2003, then moved to DC. I have a full-time job as research economist for an association in the transportation industry and I'm attempting to get my Master's degree in Economics from Johns Hopkins, part-time, while keeping my sanity!

Hiked about 5 miles, some very rocky difficult terrain up here (Acadia Mountain loop). I got frustrated with my friend Ivan for being too slow - I was really trying to go as slow as I possibly could, but can't compete with a guy walking around looking up at all times with his hands in his pockets! So we made a deal: I'd go as slow as I possibly could if he tried to pick up his pace a little... it worked for a little bit, but then surely enough he stepped the wrong way down a rock and twisted his ankle really bad. Poor guy, I felt horrible... but.... i have to admit, I was a little glad inside, planning all the miles I'd do the next day, since he wasn't going to be able to hike. I know, I'm bad. I'm going straight down to hell... BUT, I also know that deep inside HE was also happy that the pressure was off for him to do any hiking the next day, and he would be able to do whatever he wanted (which was our agreement from the beginning anyway, he just wanted to hike with me to be nice and so I wouldn't be alone). Anyway... we made it back to the car and to the campsite, he iced his ankle, we made some good food, a nice fire, and went off to sleep.

I cannot tell you how gorgeous Acadia NP is. I'll post some pics soon. I was wowed. Wow.
