Visit to Lewisville School and the Boys & Girls Club of Magnolia


Ok I can’t lie, I am fairly exhausted again tonight. This morning I slept through my alarm and had to drag myself out of bed still half-asleep.  Before taking off, I was treated to breakfast at the local cafe, I visited my hosts’ daughter’s school and talked to her class, met with the newspaper, and got a tour of the Sheriff’s Office and the Courthouse. Busy morning!

Then I was escorted out of town by Officer R. Cox, my host for last night.  He helped me along the way when the shoulder disappeared. Thanks Randy :  )  I had a sort of easy day, only 23 miles, but my feet felt kinda flat.  Might be time for a new pair of sneaks!

Upon finishing up in Magnolia, I met the cross-country coach for Southern Arkansas Uni, and met up with Lindsay, the student who is hosting me on campus tonight! Then I got to go visit the Boys& Girls Club here in Magnolia, talk to the kids, (lose to them AGAIN in a race!) And sit down with the local newspaper. 

Headed back to the apartment, showered up, and was treated to dinner with the XC coach and two of his star runners.  I got Chicken Cacciatore because it’s one of my favorite things that my Mom makes for me :  )

So it was a busy day! Tomorrow is long mileage so please send me lots of energy to my legs :  )  Goodnight!

  1. I can’t believe you are already in Arkansas! I keep picturing a map with the vast west and you already across into the teeny east. I know it’s bot exactly like that but kind of, no? Can u believe that tomorrow you will probably finishing “next month”. I know you probably are enjoying yourself way too much to think about finishing but damn girl, you’re almost done! lots of love, energy and happy thoughts today. Xooxooxox

  2. OK Z …sending good leg and feet vibes ! Hoping today’s run is exciting , interesting , safe , pain free and light like a feather floating thu the Arkansas Breeze !

    Stay Strong , Be Happy and Run On , Dad xoxoxo

  3. Zoe!
    I had a dream about you and your wild run last night. I can’t remember where you were at that point, but everything was going well. I was definitely out of body following along, but we did chat.

    Glad I checked in this morning so I could send along some energy as well. Y’know, after the morning, to continue breaking walls, living the dream, etc.

    You’re amazing.
