Day 4 - Robert Schoen

On the fourth day I rested.

I decided to give my legs, knees, feet, and toes a break today. I sat in the Jacuzzi a few times, and took the hotel shuttle to the mall to buy a pair of trail shoes at North Face.

But mostly I thought about the last few days, the 50 miles I’ve walked, and the challenges—physical, mental, and emotional—I’ve already had to face. When one is at the beginning of a long and arduous undertaking, it’s hard not to look at the end-point and, well, desire it. But as we all know, these big undertakings are accomplished in small, bite-sized chunks.

I realize my goal has to be to plan just what I’ll be trying to accomplish tomorrow—10 miles, maybe 15, maybe more. Maybe less.

For the first time, I do not know where I’ll be sleeping tomorrow night. (Destination: Fontana) Where’s the back seat of my car when I need it?
