Day 9

Today started with a breakfast buffet from our hotel. I had Nutella toast again. Nutella is a very big thing here. I also had my first hot coco of the day. A bit into our hike we stopped at a little restaurant. I got a fruit cake and another hot coco. It was poring rain […]

TMB Stage 8

I mentioned yesterday that I didn’t know if this much hiking was making me stronger or just more tired. I still don’t know, but both feelings are even more intense after today’s 11 miles. I don’t remember the elevation stats and I’m too tired to look them up, but I think it was pretty close […]

Day 11: Champex-Lac to Trient

Today was a hard one for me. The hardest of the hike. The milage and elevation was on par with our other average days, but I really struggled mentally, causing the physical work to be really hard. The hotel provided an awesome breakfast which was the fuel I definitely needed. After breakfast we packed up […]

TMB Stage 7

Crazy that we’re already a week into this adventure. It seems like just yesterday we were in Les Houches taking pictures at the starting gate. If all goes according to plan we’ll be back there again in just four more days, this marathon seems to be flying by. We woke up this morning to the […]

WHEW! We made it! Today was by far the longest hike of the TMB for us. 16 mfing miles while hiking over 3,500 feet up and over 4,500 feet down (that’s right, nearly a mile down). From the time we booked this trip we knew that today was going to be the hardest. We’d planned […]

We made it back to Switzerland! This was one of my favorite hikes of the week so far. We woke up bright and early at 4:55 and were promptly on the trail by 5:30. I don’t really much of what happened before 10:30. I ate some granola bars and strutted along my merry way. At […]


Day 8

Today started way to early at 5 am we woke up and got right to hiking skipping breakfast. I have had no idea what time it is all day but at some point close to when we stared hiking I had a granola bar and then another I think like 6 miles in. I didn’t […]
