Last Big Day on the Trail

The last big day on the trail– 32.9 miles.

I’m tired.
I’m a little soggy.
I haven’t brushed my hair in a few days.
I’ve shed a lot of tears.
I’m in so much pain.

The last three days I’ve been hyper focused on just putting one foot in front of the other. So focused that I’m forgetting to look up and enjoy the view.

I kinda just want to be finished.

But now as I lay in camp just 5 miles from the Durango terminus, it’s weird to think it’s over already. I have a lot to process from these last two weeks.

I feel like I hit my limit, but maybe these last few days were my low point, and if I was out longer I’d get past it.

I have so much more strength and resilience in me than I expected. Often I’m quick to quit when things get too hard. Not this time.

Many more thoughts to come. See you in Durango bright and early tomorrow morning.
