Today I walked for 14 miles! My ankle was sore and I didn’t want to push it too much so I took it easy and walked a lot. I started the day with another long ascent, and finished the day with an amazing massage courtesy of Levi’s mom Debra. Levi is the couchsurfer I’m staying with, he’s been really helpful : )
I was supposed to meet up with my brother today but he had RV troubles so I have to wait til tomorrow : ( this morning I headed out with my stroller but realized a few miles in that the hill would be really hard to do with the stroller, so I turned back and left it at Levi’s house then headed out again. I was chuckling thinking that I’ve had to backtrack for one reason or another every single day so far. Except the first. I don’t know what it will be like when I just have a ‘normal’ day!!
I also met some cool guys at a rock climbing store today and they were telling me about their friend who biked across the country in NINE days. Nine days!! People are crazy. The store also had 2 flavors of Clif Shot Bloks that I’ve never tasted so that kinda made my day.
tomorrow im thinking I will probably take a rest day and go exploring with my brother if he gets here early enough.
That’s it for the first week! A ginormous thank you to everyone who helped me along this week- couch surfers Sharon, Lev, Christiaan, Levi, Mary and Shane. The local Boys and Girls Clubs, Christine, Jeanette, Debra, Miracle Hot Springs Resort, Carolyn, Anthony, Erin and Rosa. And of course mom and dad.
And thanks to everyone who’s donated! Think it’s at around $ 8,500 now!
