I start my third Camino two months from today and was doing some research this morning. I came across a short story (the link is found below). As I opened this webpage, the picture at the top of the story took me aback. I saw a young man that I met in advance of Rabanal del Camino back in 2017. I walked with him a bit and later shared a beer once in town. Three years later he tracked me down and it turned out we live only 30 minutes apart in New Jersey. So I once again met up with him over a beer or two.
Do yourself a favor and read Bryan's inspiring story as he climbed the rocks and other assorted mementos of the Cruz de Ferro. Bryan suffers from muscular dystrophy. He hiked the entirety of Frances and subsequently the Portuguese Camino. His spirit is boundless; his determination epitomizes much of what the Camino espouses.

Beautiful story, well written. Best wishes to Bryan, and thank you for sharing this. The Camino is a physical challenge for anyone, but some of us start out with additional obstacles to overcome that make success even more poignant. Bravo ( and brava) for all those who persevere.

A moving story beautifully written, with lessons that can apply to all of us. We cannot choose our burdens, only how we choose to carry them. Thank you so much for posting this.
