So it has been a full year since I started hiking the Appalachian Trail. I find myself thinking back to my experience everyday, thinking about where I was, who I was with, and what obstacles (both physical and mental) I was dealing with at the time. I guess I really do have a case of "Springer Fever." Although the final numbers have yet to be reported, the ATC website is showing that 343 of the 1425 Northbounders finished (~24%). I feel blessed that I was able to succeed and at the same time share my experience with so many people. Thank you all again for your support last year.
