Rest Day in Bend
I’m terrible about remembering to take pictures in town. I had an absolutely perfect rest day with my parent’s friends, Bill and Marilyn, in Bend. During my rest day I recharged mentally and physically, and got a lot of encouraging words from friends and family. I realized while I was thinking about the past few days, that I had gone 290 miles in 10 days and not taken a single day off. By the end of the rest day I had changed my mind and was ready to tackle the rest of the trail.
I like the way you worked through this and I think the most important thing you figured out is REST is necessary to keep doing our work. Let yourself escape from the task – don’t sweat the deadline, give yourself space to do the task.
