Travel - TMB Roman RoadHere we are beginning our hike on the stretch of the Tour du Mont Blanc that is an ancient Roman Road.  This climb was strenuous, but the old paving was interesting to think about.  I pictured chariots, horses, and Roman soldiers making this arduous trek through the mountains to their conquests.  And then I forgot all about that because, as often happens on the TMB, it just kept going up!  Don’t kid yourself, the TMB is quite a workout no matter how fast or slow you do it.  Every night I was sore, with aching hips and thighs.  Self-talk is important, though, so every night I literally told my “boys” (thighs) to heal up because we have another day of hiking tomorrow.  And miraculously, they did!  I would wake up feeling much better and ready to go.
