The first four days have been full of ups and downs - terrain, emotions, hunger, weather. I hit my first 3 sleep destinations and am a few miles ahead of my overall average pace. Therefore, after developing shinsplints yesterday from running on city concrete sidewalks, I decided to head in a little early today to rest and get caught up online. I still need a true internet connection before checking email but using my phone's internet capabilities I am able to post some images, update the webpage and post some messages. Thanks so much for the new responses! There is a little technical difficulty with the message board but I should have it cleared up soon. More images, stats and day-by-day journal entries are on there way. Hope all is well with everyone and besides a little too much sun, I'm doing great!
