Day 32 post-hike!
Today Kris and I were able to deliver an envelope to K9’s For Warriors that was stuffed with $23,700 worth of checks. Awesome enough that we’re going to be able to sponsor a K9. Get to name him/her (“Blaze” after white blazes denoting trail…good one, Kerri), follow progress through training and attend graduation. How cool is that!
Thanks to all of you who have sent in your pledges. Friendly reminder to those who haven’t gotten around to it yet. Checks are rolling in at all 3 of the charities I hiked for. We should end up raising more than $63,000! You should have heard from me regarding your contribution. If you haven’t, please let me know.
Things are pretty much back to normal. Been walking the golf course a couple times a week. I tell myself it’s a 7-mile slack pack…that you can get beer in the middle of. I loved days like that just a couple months ago!
Working to put back on some of the 25 lbs I lost. Physically I feel pretty good. Feet are still sore but getting better. Pinky that I dislocated is swollen and a bit store. I went out for a run for the first time post-hike on Tuesday. Knees hurt so bad, I only made it a block. That was a tad bit frustrating! They feel fine other than when I tried to run. Guessing they’re probably a tad bit worn out yet.
Thanks once again to all for your support on this trek and for your generous contributions to the charities I hiked for. You are helping good charities do good things!
