Stroll to LA

Lindsay picked up a weekend shift in Lewiston and my car wasn’t registered, so no going to the mountains for me. Instead, I decided to see if I could walk to Lewiston before Lindsay’s shift was up. Because why not? I left shortly after she did and began walking back roads toward Lewiston. I nearly turned around at mile 10 when I got a hotspot on my foot and my legs began to ache. But I decided to push on. At mile 20 I laid down for about 10 minutes and elevated my feet on a tree stump. That did the trick, because by mile 22 I came out of the pain cave and the final 10 miles were cruizer. Lindsay ended up picking me up in Auburn. I was maybe an hour shy of reaching Lewiston, which was unfortunate because I had my eye on grabbing a beer at Baxter Brewing.
