Well it’s the end of 3 weeks on the road. Mileage for this week was pretty good, where I hope to keep it for the rest of the trip: 26, 29, 27, 25, 23, 22.
Today’s run was just average, just kind of got in the zone and didn’t think about much. The scenery was beautiful though. I just put some photos up on the Facebook page and I’ll get them up here too. I hit a long ascent midway through and it looks like Monday will be a lot of climbing too. I’m passing through a place called ‘Top of the World’ , if that’s a hint of what’s to come.
After the run I got to meet a bunch of my cousins out here whom I’ve never met, and they were all around my age, so that was pretty cool.
Tomorrow my Uncle is taking me up towards the mountains to see some pretty sights and enjoy the day off : )
Thanks to everyone who helped out this week: Cousins Deb, Kohl and Preston, Matt Kraemer and Endurance Rehab, Heather, Sargina and Bridget from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix, all the awesome kids at the Jerry Colangelo Branch, Luis from ABC, the Runner’s Den, Officer Bill in Wickenburg and of course my Uncle Al!! And Debbie whose determination to help was fantastic even if we never got to meet up!
