Not only has Lucy reached El Chalten, her current progression point is over 400 km north.
Is it more difficult than I thought? Yes. Am I surprised by what challenges me? Yes. Am I confident I'll finish? No. Will it worry me if I don't? No.
Because, as of today I'm more than 1400 kms ahead of where I would have been if I hadn't started. I wouldn't have experienced the kindness of strangers, the support from a growing community, or the potential for a simple idea to inspire other people to begin their own... If I hadn't started.
There will always be someone who wants to critique you... So if you're setting some big goals make sure you're well supported - and take on the quote from my Mum instead: Have the courage to be who you want to be!
