Girls trip to South Rim grand canyon yavasupai lodge.  Left 130 pm Sun from Timp hospital where we met summer, jane and julie e and we all including myself, kim and carley headed to the lodge. stopped in Page.  Ate.  Got to lodge after 9 pm.  Got our gear together and we headed to bed.  Up at 415 am.  Dressed and ate and headed to the South Kaibab trail..  Left at 520 am from the trail and hiked down to bottom and got there in about 2 hours 8 minutes.  took lots of pics.  not me but the group.  ran along the gradual inclining trail to the north rim.   about 7 miles.  then up the north rim 7 miles.  got there at 1241 pm.   7 hours 21 minutes.  Stayed up there til 1 pm taking pics and eating.  Then returned same way..  Sunset 5:37 and made it to the bottom of south kaibab about 450pm.  I headed out before they all did and power hiked until they caught me one by one.  Because it was dark and I had no poles I was struggling on this steep ascent.  we were supposed to do the gradual south rim trail back up bright angel but decided to get it done in 7 miles instead of 9.  It was difficult for me.  My breathing was labored and wonder if the flu shot last wednesday afternoon was still working on me.  I counted up my calories after this and I had taken 1930 including the meal before we left of pb bread and honey and half banana.  summer got up to me (the rest were a ways away) and I asked her to stay with me.  they all had poles  I did but left them at the start because they were collasping and were heavy and I figures just one steep climb with them but when we changed to the steep way back I was struggling bad.  summer told me to put on my music and after a few up beat songs "press forward" came on  yw 2016 theme song and I played it like 10 times and summer said i had to keep moving.  she was thinking of giving me her poles but saw how badly i was struglling that she was worried for herself.  i definitely would not have taken them.  at one point i had to stop and eat something.  we sat on a rock for like 30-45 secs while i got something out and then we started again per summer promptiing.  it seemed to go on forever the climbing up dirt with logs and sometimes rocks sometimes a mix of both and sometimes cobble stones.  I thought for sure it was like 10 pm!! but we got there at 830 pm.  15 hours 10 min.   also david archuletas song glorious helped after i played the other song ten times.  Peed several times running.  I was not dehydrated.  I never had to remove my thermal until I descended again from the north rim to the base.  still kept on my running tights with the shorts.  Put on the other shirt again 8 miles later before the ascent.   Dark with head lamps last 4 miles.
