3 trail runners

I just witnessed 3 awesome and very fit trail runners heading down the mountain.

Friends of Troy Blackman.

Across the Land, Saturday, August 30th, 2014

At Amicalola Falls pretty early. I worked on the stairs and the trails today. Lots of miles. Felt good.

Talked with a lot folks about alzheimers disease. Talked with some of the staff at the park about the “Chi” style of running.

This evening I will do some more thinking about what I have learned and should get closer to a game plain for the next trip.

Veterans, alzheimers and suicide.

Spoke with 2 veterans. I had no idea until a couple of days ago about the theory that post street tramatic stress increases the chance of someone getting alzheimers.

Veteran suicides are also at an all time high. I am trying to learn if there is anything I can do or say on my trip across America that might help when I run into homeless veterans. I spoke with a lot of them last year.

Help for homeless Veterans

Trained VA staff are on-call and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to assist homeless Veterans and their families at 1-877-4AID VET (877-424-3838).

A homeless Veteran will probably not be reading this. Maybe you could write down the number and give it to one, if you come upon one.
