I thought this was very well done. Loved the "detoxing" comment, and the " if I didn’t finish this trip, I’d be dragging it behind me forever."

And now her life will be forever ruined as she tries to figure out how to get back on another long distance trail. :)

"if I didn’t finish this trip, I’d be dragging it behind me forever."

Oh boy, can I relate to that. I think about my trip last summer on CT every. single. day. Sometimes I have a hard time letting myself look back on the experience in a positive light because I "didn't do the whole thing."

That said, this also helps put things into perspective. She didn't do the whole thing and had a very transformative experience. At what arbitrary mileage marker are you considered "changed"?

Thankfully I will have the opportunity to correct the mistake next summer. :)
