Spent.

So much to say and not a drop of energy to say it. Had 35 miles, 40 mph winds, and stretch after stretch of construction, resulting in lots of off-roading and plowing through knee-high grass for me and my stroller.  The wind was so bad that I literally had to hold my stroller down. And it weighs 60 lbs at least!  I left at 830 am and finished at 730 pm. So all I got is gooooodnight!

And everyone in Greenville, TX, check out the paper tomorrow :  )
Also, saw my first snake of the trip today. It was dead = good. It was 4 feet long = yikes.

Hello! I'm a runner, a writer, and have run across the United States and the Tour de France course. Most recently, I'm blogging about my adventures in an MFA program that will bring me to Chile, Argentina, and Brazil, and my teaching plans for Argentina.

  4. Zoe,
    You are awesome. (BTW I love your dad’s comments. Super cool.) So glad I could spend time with you today and also glad I drive a super big SUV too (despite the $3.35 gas prices – you are worth it). Hope I get to see you again tomorrow in Cooper before you leave, if not I hope the remainder of your travels are safe and successful! Just know people in East Texas are cheering for you!
    Go girl!
