Day #22 – Marion,VA to Counsil, VA – 57 miles / 92 km

Above is the elevation profile of the area. On the right side you can see Sugar Grove, where the brothers stopped two days ago. On the left side is Counsil, where they spend the night today.

The slope starting from Hayters Gap was especially hard. At one point Peter stopped and measured his heart rate: he counted 32 beats in the first 10 seconds. It took them an hour to climb that slope, and he says his heart was racing like this for most of that time.

  1. What a grueling route but with great determination to keep pushing forward to reach their goals of raising funds and visibility for the Blind Judo Foundation. Please consider supporting these young “warriors” as they make their way back to CA and the lessons to be learned with a donation to help blind and visually impaired individuals get an opportunity to improve their lives with introductions to the sport of Judo. Donations are appreciatively received at All donations are tax exempt. Thank you for supporting these two teenage brothers with your donation. Greatfully, Ron Peck – Blind Judo Foundation
