Campsite by a pond

AT miles hiked today: 8.7
Total AT miles hiked: 478.7

Today was a struggle all day, but I like hearing the frogs at the pond where we are camped. The bugs are getting worse and I have no energy, but at least I am moving forward and my bowls have temporarily stopped moving, which is a blessing for now. I still don't really want to eat and have to make myself eat, knowing that if I don't I will feel even worse.

We are three days behind the other women and two days behind the guys. We are making plans to try to catch up to them, though I think Crazy Beard and Low Profile may be only a day ahead. I miss my friends and am happy that Eagle Eye is with me. Have I forgotten how to hike alone?
