No pun intended! Somehow, by the grace of God, I managed to run 7 miles this morning to bring me to 500 miles run on my transcontinental journey! I woke up at 4.00 am when Kevin left for the airport so I got an earlier start and, since the kids didn't have school, I could run a little longer than usual.
The photo below shows my progress to date through Virginia.
This is my view at mile 500.0, about 5.5 miles away from Hayers Gap, VA in Washington County.
I have 237.7 miles left to run before I cross my first state line into Kentucky! I would like to accomplish that before we leave Thailand for the summer but I can't promise anything. It has been horribly hot and humid here and I am taking it one day at a time as far as what distance I run. Right now, it is 97 degrees with a "feels like" temperature of 104. This is our forecast for the rest of the week & the weekend:
