Overcast skies made for a chillier Sunday… but the winds had died down, resulting in a much more pleasant walking experience. Unfortunately, blisters and stress-related injuries from the first two days were taking their toll, keeping our medical crew busy with taping, wrapping, and more taping to keep our walkers on the road. Luckily Sunday was only ten miles and the day went by quickly!
