Last night I Was in bed and I prayed over and over again please heal my ankle or I cannot walk I thought i pulled my Achilles tendon or really strained something. Thought I had a fever and a terrible cough. My socks were soaked and they needed to be dry by morning. Went to sleep and started my hike. 2 minutes into my hike we stop at a water spout to refill.

At the water spot 2 minutes in, I solved my ankle problem. It wasn't my ankle it was my shoe. My socks were completely dry. My cough was minimal. And all my problems were solved
