860 miles in and my body is certainly feeling it. I say it quite often but cannot stress it enough, getting out of bed to tackle another twenty miles every day is hard, but knowing that there are people out there that continue to show us love and support drives us. Today was a prime example of that. I was not having a good morning per say, with the frustration of pain and letting my mind win, but when we passed groups of school children smiling and waving or meeting the loved ones of people on the support staff, I was reminded that there are amazing people with all of the faith in the world in us. We started out as a team of 6 strangers, but we’ve become a huge family made up of people all across the UK. It’s going to be difficult to leave when we complete this crazy feat on the 1st. I will definitely be leaving a piece of me here, but I suppose that means I’ll have to come back….on vacation of course, without the walking shoes
Another day down, and we’re ready for another twenty miles.
