Not Leading, Not Following ~ May 22, 2018

• Tuesday, May 22, 2018, Day #12

• Requejada

• Distance 13.5 miles; total 171.7 miles (including 2-minute train ride crossing river)

• 1,146’ ascent and 1,154’descent

• 90% hard surface

• Time: 7 1/2 hours

• Weather: 55-65 sunny

Not leading. Not following. Just walking. I have broken the standard stages so I no longer walk with the daily pilgrim pack. It’s too easy to walk at their pace, to make their right turns, or to make their wrong turns. I do not feel the burden of conversation. Today I feel the most at peace with myself because it’s just me.
