Day 111:

"I was nailed by fickle Newfoundland weather today! At Deer Lake it was 25 degrees and sunny with a slight tailwind blowing up from the South. I could see this wall of clouds moving in from the North when I headed into the grocery store for some food but I did not think anything of it. I was only in the store for 15 minutes but when I came out the temperature had dropped to 10 degrees, the sky was completely overcast and there was a 30 kph headwind gusting in from the North. That cold, blustery weather just about did me in. The ground was level but I was struggling to do 10 kph. My face and hands were numb with cold and my spirits were droppingfast. I was having to battle with myself just to continue."

Tired, so very tired. Spirit broken and body fatigued. This picture captures how I am feeling perfectly.
