Flying With Eagles

When anyone says they are flying with eagles - they mean that they have reached a lofty goal.
Today was the test that we have been looking forward to - spending all day walking - seeing how well we would do - how our gear would work - how prepared we were.  Of course - we wanted to be at this point - we wanted to do well - without any issues - and we did! 


As we were making our second trek of the day - we saw three eagles soaring overhead - thus the reason for the post title.  Our plan today was to walk three segments - each two hours in length - and we did just that. We came in just shy of the 6 hour mark but did manage to walk a total of 16 miles (26 km).  At this point we feel that we are ready for the Camino.  

Training is a constant with us now - heading to the Camino - we know we will be prepared.

Buen Camino
