Day 35 – This little piggy made me go to the DR.

Hello Grace tribe, Sorry for the late post, Grace is fine, but she did need to see a Doctor today. See photo below, her toe was getting unbearable. This ended up being Cellulitus. She also has chapped lips, which turned out to be infected which caused gland swelling plus she is dehydrated. With that said she needs some down time till she can roll out again. Saturday WAY early, Grace will hit the road and head to the finish line!
Yesterday was one of the hardest yet and she was loaded down with supplies for one of her heaviest bike weight days. Hard technical climbs and sand, she fell over twice… but it was a soft landing. She got hailed on. After the hail it rained on her technical decent. Luckily she has the skills for that. It thundered a good part of the day. Grace saw a bunch of jack rabbits and road through a Christmas tree forrest, so it wasn’t 100% bad
Your words get to Grace and they have been significant to her! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Day 34 – Strangers with goodies

Hello Grace tribe, Well… Grace is out of the gate rolling early today. Gotta beat that heat! She rested up last night and had a great stay in Abiquiu. They also had all the supplies she needed for this next stretch. (See photo below) Grace does believe she may never want to see another Cliff Bar after all this.

Yesterday she meet the coolest lady trail angel in El Rito. She gave her 2 frozen bottles of water for my pockets, spray sunscreen and baby wipes then we had lunch! Grace is blown away by the kindness of the people that are out there!

Grace requested to dedicate today to Derek Kozowski, Key donor to this adventure. THANK YOU for believing in Grace and for your incredible generosity and support!

Day 33 – Wild fire

Hello Grace tribe, Grace called in this morning. She made it to a very small town and spent the night in their community center (See photo below) This morning some friendly cows woke her up here to start her day. It’s been another rough push these past 2 days and she is getting a little tired. She will push on to Abiquiu to have a modern stay, clean up, resupply and find some rest.

There was a warning of a wild fire and a reroute but she received a text today that all is clear and she can proceed with original route. The past 2 days trail angels really helped out. A nice couple up on Indiana pass gave her fresh water, someone stopped her to give her a banana and a nice cowboy paster let her stay at the community center last night. Kindness is out there folks!
