Out of all six night’s we camped out, certainly this was the most comfortable. Their was a bed of grass on which we slept that almost felt like an air mattress. My best educational guess is “miracle grow!” I can’t complain because God’s provided us with a place to stay one way or another every night, even in the deserts.
As it turns out, we are not going to have a TV interview in Twin Falls. There was a slight mixup because Channel 8 thought we were in Idaho Falls as opposed to Twin Falls. They are still in contact with us and would like to make a story when we go through Pocatello on Sunday, which is about two hours closer to them.
Today’s escapade led us to a vast lea well outside of the metropolitan area. The run started out very well as my knee was holding up, but nearly half way through I began to experience a sharp pain in my left thigh.
Sustained injuries throughout the journey were, are, and will be expected. I have come to terms with that. They are pushing me to heights I never thought achievable. The idiom “It’s mind over matter.” holds to be true in this case. The body does what the mind tells it to do.
No matter what sort of elements I may be going through at the time, I am able to spend a lot, though “a lot” may be an injustice, of time contemplating and praying.
I always tell myself that God is keeping me well enough to persevere but humble enough to keep my focus on Him. I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to spend time with Him because He is the reason for our existence in the first place.
I’d also like to mention I’ve covered almost enough ground to wear a new pair of shoes. Perhaps, Wyoming’s terrain will see them. Speaking of which, tomorrow we are scheduled to reach our 700 mile marker.
Here are a few trivial facts for your enjoyment. Coldest Day: 33 Degrees F./Warmest Day: 84 Degrees F.; Highest Elevation: 4909 Ft./Lowest Elevation: 0 Ft. (Sea level); Longest Roadway: 258 miles; Shortest Roadway: 1.4 miles.
After the day’s run was over, I went back and iced my knee. While I was doing the 20 minutes on/20 minutes off icing routine, Zach from KTVB called to inform us that the interview would be aired tonight.
There is a fine line between having an interview and seeing yourself on TV. The link to the clip should be active within a few days.
We were also able to visit the famous Shoshone Falls for a few minutes. The descent to the cascading waterfalls was a bit nerve-wracking because there was nearly no forgiveness on the edges.
When we finally arrived to the lowest point at which we were permitted to go, we were spellbound. We hope you enjoy the photos. Video.
Well, it’s time for me to get some rest for tomorrow’s adventure will be enduring but scenic. Catch you all later!
