if I do not complete my thru hike I will:

1. Know my limits and keep trying
2. Be disappointed but not defeated
3. Let over 700 people down
4. Have learned a lot about myself
5. Test myself in other ways
6. Have to of had a serious injury because there is no way I am coming off this trail otherwise
7. Pick up where I left off in march 2013 and finish a thru hike regardless
8. Feel like a part of me is missing
9. Still have had the experience of a lifetime
10. Know that I had the support of hundreds of wonderful people and will continue to spread a message of hope to others
