Bruised and Busted ~ But Not Broken

I tried to go to sleep last night, but my blisters, bruises, and busted knee kept me from sleeping ~ plus that mountain!

Mount Katahdin.  Most people refer to it as just Katahdin … I did too.  Out of respect, she is MOUNT Katahdin to me!!

Last night, while trying to get to sleep and each time my pain would wake me, my mind would go back over my trek.  I loved it!  I replay every step I took … there isn’t anything I could or would change.  Yes, I would have loved to have summited, but I know I went as far as I possibly could … for now.

If it wasn’t for my knee … I’d go back today and try again … I’m not sure if I’d ever stop trying.

I love to walk … I could walk forever.  I love to hike … I love to wonder down paths unexplored by me … whether they be paved, dirt, sand or whatever … I always want to go down that dark alley!

So … although I’m busted today … I am not broken … and I know I’ll be back up to summit Mount Katahdin ~ soon!

Anyone up for a vacation in Maine this year?!? ~ Hit me up!!
