How many of you runners out there would leave on a trip to run 2,000 kms with one pair of shoes? (Well I do have a pair of ballet flats…)
I’m 700 plus Kms into this and I’m pretty happy with my feet. One pair of Kailua trail. Thank you Mr Hoka.
In the next few days I’m meeting a “Pilgrim host” that I sent another pair of Hokas to. I don’t need them yet but I don’t have the luxury of opening my cupboard when I want to. Carry them both? Decisions… Mud in Switzerland might make it nice to have a spare? But there’s been mud everywhere. Less to carry is best…..
Stopping in Langres last night was probably one of the best decisions of the week. I dried everything out and lay horizontal in a locked room. Those tent openings just don’t give you that peace of mind.
Reaching over to my phone at 5 am to check the weather was also rewarding. A balmy 5 degrees and rain “not forecast” till 4pm..??
Saw another bambi and didn’t get lost all day. I did start talking to nobody when it started to rain. “You can wait till 4 pm!” Nup. There you go again, he wasn’t listening.
I’d emailed a place in Dampierre called Croq’Loisirs for a bed.
No idea what it was but they were obliging so that’s where I went. I was shown a bed and asked the price…€5 … With shower.. For the night???
It’s actually a child care centre (mental note to self…. Get out early!!!)
