I am heading for Big Lake this morning. After pushing close to fifteen miles yesterday my heal is protesting, I have limped to the Holiday gas station and am awaiting the sunrise. I don't want to upset anyone on their way to work to the "cities. Sorry I have not written more lately. Yesterday I was sore at the end and didn't want to walk in the beginning. Some days are better than others as far as my attitude. I am glad I walked the extra (cough) mile to the YMCA in Elk River where they allowed me to shower. My water cooler spilled on the floor of the van. On the way from Anoka when I nearly was sandwiched by a speeding bus on the ramp up to the highway. It's a new thing for me to look out for them on the shoulder. I will be reminded of it for a while by the smell of old stale carpet. At least it didn't spill where I lay down at night.
A girl stopped me yesterday who told me she was just diagnosed with type-1 diabetes two weeks ago. She was excited I was walking for the cause. After we parted I was sad such a beautiful young woman now had her world turned on its head.
My walking won't help as does the research for cures. Find a worthy research organization and spend your lotto dollars!
