Today was the without a doubt the best rest day we’ve had. I spent the day doing the most restful activity I could think of: baking cookies. They were soon devoured by the four of us and the neighbors. Other than that, nothing else exciting happened until dinner, which we ate with the nice lady in the house next to us. We ate better full meals today than we normally eat at home, which was well needed. We also ate entirely too many sweets, but we will be walking them off in the 24-miler day we’ve got tomorrow, which we‘re bracing ourselves for.
Special thanks to Andy Ridenour and Mary Watters for being the most gracious and kind hosts the last two nights. We probably would not be ready to finish without them.
