Know When to Walk Away, Know When to Run…

Bailing out on trips

It’s just not worth getting hurt when you’re just training.

I bailed off this trail because it was cold, it was raining, and I was underdressed. Treevalanches were coming down all around me, and getting hit in the head with a big icy lump can ruin anyone’s day

The next time I went back to this trail it was covered with broken branches and downed trees. Running away had been the right decision!

Like Willie Nelson said,

“You’ve got to know when to hold ’em
Know when to fold ’em
Know when to walk away
And know when to run…”
