Day 29

Today Miles: Off Day
28 run days - 1 off day
Total Miles to Date: 779.67

Today I was able to sleep in till about 9.

I had an interview at 10 with a local Lancaster journalist that went really well. We had the interview at “The Swamp” 🐊 The coolest Florida Gator swamp outside Gainesville.

After the interview my aunt and grandmother took me out to eat at a local restaurant that neither of them had eaten at before. I had salmon and broccoli. At the end of the meal my cousin Brittany showed up and surprised me with the idea of taking me kayaking (which I love) out at a local spot where she goes.

We went and got the kayaks and loaded a small cooler and off we went. We had a great time. It was really nice to relax, get in the water, and just have a fun conversation with her because she also loves the outdoors and travel. We talked about all kinds of things. I just want to say thank you Brittany for taking me out there and just making my day feel completely at peace. It was fantastic. When I get done with this run, there will be more days like that I promise!

Once we got back to the house Tammy made some asparagus (my favorite!) and egg rolls and we had a nice dinner.

Everyone was a little interested in the cart I push. So after dinner we spent a good amount of time loading it up now that the tire is good and showing them everything I carry with me and Kurt gave me a new box for my hygiene stuff since my bag was ripping and wouldn’t zip. They also gave me a couple stickers to put in my box and water bottle. I’m hoping by the time I get back it’ll be covered.

Kurt also out of the kindness of his heart and a little bit of arguing from me gave me a few more things for my trip. It’s so hard for me to ask for things but he seen I needed it and wouldn’t take no for a answer. So for that I really appreciate it!

**Family is so important everyone! Family should be on the tops of everyone’s priority list! **

To my Vets:

Never stop fighting until you arrive at your destined place - that is, the unique you. Have an aim in life, continuously acquire knowledge, work hard, and have perseverance to realise the great life.
