There was a nice article in our hometown newspaper this weekend about our AT-adventure. Some of the quotes were a bit mysterious, especially the one about missing junk food (actually quite the contrary), but all-in-all a very good article. You can check it out HERE.
It has been amazing to me just how many folks back home followed along with our journey and were actually very interested in and inspired by the endeavor. The best story I've heard though was over the weekend. A lady that teaches with Kadra came up to me in the park and introduced her daughter to me and told me that her 5th-grader was inspired to start running because of hearing about me running the AT. She has done numerous 5K's in the past months (a PR of 26-minutes) and LOVES running . . . that my friends warmed my heart like you would not believe.
