John Vonhof should be everybody's best friend. For years, he has
been tending the feet of the people who most abuse them—hikers
and runners. His experience as an ultra-runner led him to
a life-long interest in the treatment of feet, and he
understands what we do wrong and how we can correct it. I, along
with many of my fellow hikers, completely ignored my feet on the
trail. They hurt, my toenails dropped off one by one, and I lost
feeling in my toes for about four or five months after I
finished. I had no idea how I should treat them and I'll certainly
be taking some of the precautions that John shares with us for my
upcoming hikes later this year. If you'd like to learn more about
the very simple steps you can take to protect these most valuable
of assets, click on this link to
John's Amazon page.

John also has his own podcast, Writers Authors On Fire
Jessa has hit something of a wall.
She has been doing really well to this point and has at last
encountered an inevitable downturn. How she copes with this will be
the catalyst for her success, or her failure, in completing her
hike. We can only wish her well. She'll be sharing
her thoughts further in her blog
post later today.
