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!
