Appalachian Trail Mile 1101.7

Sunday, July 23, 2017 (Day 81)

Today was filled with hope and beauty and possibility and regeneration and the half-way mark.

In reflection, I realized that yesterday was likely the most mentally challenging day I have had on trail. A dragging culmination of un-animated drive –limp and weighty on the heels of my shoes –had finally grown large enough, and made itself known.

I have had to reach down in to my own murky depths in desperate search for the tiniest jewel of inspiration. It is always there. Just keep sifting. Quitting is simply not an option.
