Today was cold and kinda brutal. First 6 mi@les I had dog after dog after dog run out barking at me. I was so consumed by this that I missed the grocery store that I was going to run into to grab something to eat. I had some spare bars and gels in my bag but they were rock-solid cus of the cold. But I threw a couple in my sports bra and they softened up in 5 minutes, Haha.

I know it’s cold everywhere, but this morning I started the run with a windchill of 2 degrees and I guess it felt super mega cold cause I’ve been lucky enough to have the last 3 weeks full of sunshine and temps in the 70s.  I threw on all my warm clothes and channeled my tough Maine upbringing.  Don’t want my friends back home to think I’ve turned into a weakling out here in the sunshine!

Unfortunately that’s about all that I have for tonight because I am beat! Tomorrow my friend comes to help me along the way for the next two weeks! I can’t wait :  )

I keep forgetting to post mileage so I’m going to try to make a habit of listing it at the end each night:

22 miles, Globe, AZ to Peridot, AZ

  1. I still can’t believe that you are running a marathon EVERY DAY!! It would be a huge deal if I ran a half marathon SOME DAY! 🙂 To say that you are awesome is just such an understatement!
    BTW, what’s with the dogs out there?? I LOVE dogs but it seems that those dogs out west just roam around all day. Are they homeless? Poor things. Have you tried carrying treats with you? Or a big bag of BURGERS? 🙂

  2. I am driven to think of the bumper sticker we all see from time to time ..”Think Snow” ….now this is not to say I want you to wish for snow …Oh no , on the other hand imagine three feet of snow piled in the yard , streets that are nearly impassable and forecasts that predict yet another storm …”Think Snow” . I believe I am going to remove the S and W and “THINK NO”.

    Wishing you warm and sunny days , dog free runs and a passion for life like no other !!

    Love ya Z ….see my comments on your other posts …written today on this bone chilling , bright white , winters day !
