(Day 167: 3,351.59 Total Miles) Vernal Running a.k.a Fanny Pack Running

Today was the closest I've come to quitting the entire trip. Something so painful happened that I almost packed up the RV and started driving back to Illinois. About halfway through my run, I stopped at a gas station to fill up my water bottles like I do just about every day. That's where it happened. A pretty girl walked up to me and asked me why I was wearing a fanny pack and then laughed. Nothing I said would make her understand that it's actually a hydration belt. I didn't even bother to explain that I'm running across the country for charity, I just put my head down and left. I've overcome a handful of injuries on this run but the bruised ego hurts the worst. Somehow, I will have to find the strength to go on.
