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
