8.19.18 Update: Kimberly’s PCT Hike!

For all those praying for my Cousin Kimberly as she has been hiking
the PCT (Pacific Crest Trail) from Mexico to Canada.

As you know we have been saying extra prayers for her
because she while she was currently hiking the Sierras,
she gained a stress fracture in her left foot
and a sprained ankle on her right foot.

Below is an important update
from Kimberly’s Facebook page!

August 12, 2018 FB Update
Tomorrow makes a whole month off trail. I’m terribly sad to officially be ending my hike for this year having not completed the whole trail. However, I’m super happy to have hiked 1,090 miles from Mexico to South Lake Tahoe. My body just couldn’t do it and I’m hoping that with time and the proper rest for my feet, I’ll be able to finish the PCT next year. Since getting off Trail I’ve been eating… lots, still enjoying nature and it’s beautiful views, finding wildlife to laugh at, enjoying visiting my Dad in Florida and my family and friends back in Taylorsville and Charlotte, watching sunsets and straight up relaxing. Real life starts again soon but I know the trail will still be there next year! Here’s to #kbpct2018 and #kbpct2019 @ Ponce Inlet, Florida

What a hard and brave decision to make… to wisely care for one’s health! Kimberly has walked so many miles… 1,090 miles! And that’s just what she hiked from Mexico, through the desert, and to the Sierras! For those who may not know (and to remind you who do) in 2016 Kimberly was the first woman to YOYO the MST (Mountain to Sea Trail) here in North Carolina. She hiked from the NC/TN border to the Carolina Coast, and then walked back to the NC/TN border! That was a total 2,310 miles!

 🙂 Wow! 🙂

CONGRATULATIONS ON A JOB WELL DONE, KIMBERLY!

I have such confidence in what the Lord can do for you next year. Lord willing, I will blog and pray for you then as well, staying with you til you have walked the last mile!! Thank you for sharing so much of your journey with us! I hope you enjoy your slideshow! You provided the material! 😉

We continue to pray for your feet.
Hope you get plenty of rest!
You have earned it!
God loves you, Kimberly!!

    1. I praise the Lord for allowing the opportunity! You have done so well, and continue to inspire me (I’m still walking and enjoying the BRPW 🙂 ). I am glad you are getting to spend time with your dad and enjoying life! Me and God love you!

  1. She has done wonders already, having hiked over half of the California portion of the trail. John Muir would no doubt be impressed. Perhaps sections of the Florida Trail, when she is further on the mend, would be a good training exercise.
