It has been a full week since we’ve returned from walking. We are still motivated to walk, which feels great, even if our joints are still a bit “crunchy” from the long distance. I sure feel at ease with the 3-5 miles in the morning, which is pretty funny. We used to have to push it to get the miles in, but this morning felt like a breeze. It is good to feel that progress.
Also, as I’ve been home, I have realized something that feels super important to me: we can do things that we once thought impossible. Ten years ago if someone would has asked me if I could walk 100 miles I would have said, “no way.” When I started the walk, I thought “if I make it through this first day, then maybe I have a chance.” Still I didn’t believe 100% that I could do it. And then by the third day, I knew something I had never known. I have enormous endurance. And I am really fit. And I can do hard things. With grace.
We can do hard things. We can.
This, I think, it the lasting lesson for me.
This video is a compilation of all the videos that I took along the trail. They are in order (except for one). So its the 100 miles in seven minutes. If you watch it, I hope you don’t get nauseous from the lack of professional video-ing skills. It is not edited and there are some parts, well, that are a bit all over the place. Regardless of the quality, it is a small picture of the range of landscapes, weather and scenery along the Pennine Way.
Still, I’m dreaming in the beauty of it.
One thought on “Sometimes we do things we never thought possible.”
Thank you for the excellent video!
