I am currently in New York at 1400 miles and will be reaching Connecticut in 2 days. The past month of hiking has been tough and the physical and mental challenges are increasing. Over a month of super rocky terrain takes a toll on your feet and optimism. The honeymoon stage of hiking is long gone and the question of why am I doing this creeps into your thoughts more often. I am tired of hurting and tired of smelling like a molding skunk. But the dream of climbing Katahdin is under 800 miles away and I know I will make it. I will complete the trail and am excited to over come the challenges I am facing now. I am still so happy to be out here on the trail and am embracing the experiences I’m having and life long friends I’m making. Trail life is amazing and is the only real life I want. I’m on track to finish the trail around October 1st and I already know it will be a bitter sweet ending. But for now, I’m going to keep pushing on and having the time of my life.
