Just a quick update for everyone….
I got back on the trail only to continue feeling miserable, even after a good chunk of rest and different shoes. I could hardly walk on my foot after 5 miles of hiking but continued for another 25. So, I got back off because it was feeling pretty unbearable and we thought it could be a stress fracture. It turned out to be damage in some ligaments and needs 6 weeks to heal. I am pretty bummed and it’s difficult to be off, but I feel fortunate I was able to do at least 250 miles of it! I am staying at my mom’s house in Asheville while Seth is continuing to hike and he just passed 350 miles! He posted a new address for his next mail drop and I’m sure he would love some encouragement since he’s hiking alone and missing me 🙂
Thanks for all of the prayers and support! You, friends, are amazing and an inspiration to us! Please feel free to send some love my way, I miss Seth and the trail and feel pretty restless. I’m going to try to meet him periodically before he gets too far north for a day drive and I will do my best to keep you posted on how he is doing!
Love you all!
