7766km done- 7244km to go

7766 km done – 7244km to go.
Ruth and I decided to celebrate crossing the half-way point by going to Applebee’s after I completed 333km today. I am pleased with how it is going. My health is very good, my attitude is mostly positive.Thank you for your prayers.
Today during the rain a lady stepped out waving her hands frantically from the end of her driveway. My first thought was that she needed help, so I stopped. She said that they have noticed that I am out there everyday. They even timed me that one lap takes 1 hour. 
They concluded that either I had NO life, or there was a very important reason I was doing this.  So they decided to ask me. I briefly explained what I was doing and sent her to grandpascan.com for more info.
I am off tomorrow!!!!! I wonder what I will do at 3:45am when I wake up.

    Those are the same two logical conclusions I would probably have guessed if I were her. It took her a lot of days to have the courage to ask you! 🙂
