It's scary to think I'm in New Jersey already...where has the time gone? It seems like since Virginia the states have been flying by and instead of counting up the miles we've done we're counting down the miles we have left. It's a sad thing for me; inevitably the journey will end so I want to enjoy the time I have while it's still here. I'm leaving the trail in three weeks for my sister's wedding and I'm bummed about getting separated from the group I've hiked with for almost 1300 miles. Hopefully I will be able to catch them when I come back, although at this point that seems pretty daunting.
My body feels good from all the rest I've gotten; my left ("club") foot hasn't bothered me at all today but still looks a bit puffy. Whatever was wrong with it is obviously healing but I think I'm going to have a permanent bump on the top at the base of my toes. The top of my right foot has been bothering me again...or maybe I'm only noticing it since my left feels better. Some of the mobility has returned to my feet; on the trail I can sometimes barely bend my toes and my ankles are stiff, but everything feels much better today and is much more flexible.
The rest has been wonderful but I've done so much sitting for the past two days that I'm anxious to get back on the trail tomorrow. We're planning for a short day so we can take our time getting back into the swing of things!
