Today is the 22nd day of my journey. I am so sore this morning till I can barely walk. I think I have pulled a muscle in my chest. I have two big nasty blisters on my feet and both legs are begging me to give them rest.
I do not know why but I am supposed to keep going. My thoughts for today were to stay here for an extra day, go to the hospital and get myself checked out. It seems like the closer I get to Washington the more difficult it is to keep moving. This is not me, not my strength. Please believe this.
Yesterday started out a routine day. I walked through the very, very small town of Doswell, VA. Doswell is so small, wellâ€¦the pictures below tell the story.
I also walked through a very remote area!
Highway 1 is a long highway. It was very scenic with a lot of history. If you ever have the chance to visit this highway please do. It runs parallel to Interstate 95. I have had the opportunity to see just how beautiful the country is by walking at 3 mph.
About my 6th mile, I started to ache really bad. I was almost at the point of hitching a ride. I made it!!! What a feeling it was!
The body is so amazing. I have learned so much and God has revealed to me that I can do all things as long as I trust in him.
When I finally arrived at my destination for the day the traffic was horrendous! I do not know why but Virginia do not believe in crosswalks. It was dangerous crossing the street.
I meet this homeless lady and her dog Roo. We had a nice conversation and she let me take a couple pictures.
At last, I arrive at the hotel, Sleep Inn and Suites. I was greeted by Connor who was very accommodating. Thanks Connor! If you have not stayed at one of the Choice Hotels, you are really missing out. They have a great special. Stay two separate nights, get the third night free.
Once I got checked in I went to Chick-Fil-A. They donated my meals for the day. What an awesome team! They waited on me hand and foot. They treated me like royalty yall. People were staring like â€œwho is this guy?â€ Here are some photos and a cool video.
My day ended with a hot, hot shower!!
