I had someone at church yesterday say, “I bet that you are in the best shape of your life.” I was at a loss for a response. Being in the best condition of my life was not really an objective for me for this walk. I would say that I feel like I am in fairly good shape. I was in fairly good shape getting ready for this walk. See my Exercise post for more details. I have lost maybe 5 or so pounds on the walk. It has been a while since I have had a scales to check my weight. Being in top physical condition requires plenty of sleep which I am not getting. Go sleep a night in your local park and see how restful that is! Good nutrition is also critical to be in top shape. I am trying my best to get some nutrition down me, but that is also a challenge. I feel very blessed that I have not been sick on this walk. But, overall, I guess I am in fairly good shape. Come walk 20 miles with me one day and see if I am doing okay.
