A Sappy Salty Send-Off

Some reflections as a get ready to leave for Georgia:

Todays post is a little shorter, and my last one pre-trail. During the last few days and weeks I’ve been saying lots of goodbyes to people and places. Last week was my last week of work, which was so bittersweet to leave. I’ve grown to love my coworkers and job so much over the past year, and I’ve grown and learned so much there.

Last night we hosted some family friends who showered me with love, good wishes, and lots of questions. It was so lovely to spend time with all the people who helped raise me, many of whom I will hopefully get to see at some point during my hike. Because I’m sure you all are reading this…thank you for being my cheerleaders.

A few days ago I went on my last hike on Cape Cod, so the ocean could give me a proper send off. I walked a short trail through the Truro dunes and got to dip my toes in the freezing salt water. I felt like I was sending myself off,  launching myself for a big journey that has so many exciting unknowns.

If you’ve read this far, I apologies for my sappy, emotional rant. I officially promise for some quirkier and more interesting content once I hit the trail in a few days.
