Hello Grace tribe! THIS IS IT!!! The “final push” “The big finale” We all knew she could and would do it and this is it! Grace has inspired us all.
The past 2 days was pretty rough through Gila National Forrest. There was no water except for what she packed in and filtered out of shallow creeks. There was single-track however and there is pretty much 3 things Grace needs for her survival, food, water and single-track. Some of the trail was rocky and made for some hike a bike and an angry toe. Yes, this toe situation really is not any better. Gila was a wonderful sight, more than she expected. Grace drew inspiration from a road runner she saw and an angry rattle snake she crossed paths with.
Today she will stay in Silver City for a rest day. Grace needs a blinky tail light as hers is not working to start her final push tomorrow at about 3 or 4AM.
Heads up! There is not expected to be any signal or service at the finish. I will bring you a finish update when she finally gets connected again.
THIS IS IT FOLKS!!!! Let’s cheer her on! BLOW HER UP WITH COMMENTS! She sees this and loves you all for it.
2768 – 2648 = 120 miles to go!
