My feet were killing me by the early afternoon and I wasn’t getting far quick, then I saw this one car heading for me and Just as I was about to jump out of the way he moved. Then about 20 minutes later a guy pulled up and waved me over. I laughed as John told me he was the one who almost hit me before and he was sorry and hadn’t seen me. Must have been out of view from the sun. He then offered me a ride and to stay at his house but  I wasn’t going to be close and also gotta run of course had to say no. He then offered to get me some dinner at the shop across the road so I took him up on that. Thankyou so much John, Have a great canoe trip when you go.
Day 217 Day 216 Day 219 Day 220 Day 221 Day 223 Day 224
The day light disappeared and I had my lights on again trying to get this day done as soon as possible so I could rest these feet. This I think the most testing time I have been through and it is good and bad, getting to learn more about myself and work for this is kinda good even if it is killing me. Learning all the time aye. just over 2 weeks from the end and I was thinking this would be the easy end of the run but this time its the opposite but nothing is going to stop me getting there just have to work harder to get there.

Day 98, Day off . After I my shoes off last night I knew I had to take a day off, not what I want right now but with them really swollen and blisters appearing more and more I had too. Funny how walking is harder on my feet than running. must have a str and way of walking or maybe it is just the long hours I have been doing and from the other day after getting them really wet from a storm and walking on for hours. I only did this because I have never had any problems before so thought I would be fine. Oh well just keep telling them to get better and look after them. I spent the day in cold baths an with them elevated and rested. I want to get back out there tomorrow so praying they will come right. They will!
