#RunningTo Weeks 39-40 in Review: Watkinsville & Athens, GA

The final two weeks of my road trip took me home to my parents and a smattering of old friends in the Watkinsville/Athens, Georgia area. It was a fitting end for a nine-month journey that took me coast to coast. A chance to recharge and refuel and reunite with some of the dearest people in my life.

Enjoy these final images from the wandering year that was, and stay tuned for the next chapter yet to be!

Ever have a bonfire to rid yourself of things you’ve been holding onto for too long? If not, I highly recommend it.
