Joined by some more folks again trying to offer support/encouragement to our ‘damsel in some distress’.
Persistent/painful left shin splint is still slowing Mercury down on a trail she should be walking/running at a 3.0 mph pace.
She stopped early (8:30 am) to try to get more sleep and rest her injury.
We don’t have too may cards left in our hand.
The next two days will determine the nature of Mercury’s AT transit for the rest of the summer.
