It’s amazing to see how different each day still can be on this trip. I hit the ground running this morning and had this weird feeling, not believing that the road I was on was the same one as yesterday. The strides came easier, the clouds provided some shade and I ran without noticing time or distance. That’s when it’s the best. Like my Uncle Mike said, I think I’m going to chalk up yesterday to dehydration and hunger. It’s pretty interesting to see how my brain fizzles when I really need some fuel- you truly stop thinking clearly. A few days ago I went into a Subway after 30 miles, way hungry, and I kept stuttering and calling the onions peppers, asking for mayonnaise when I meant mustard, deciding no for the combo meal and then going next door to a gas station for a drink and chips, exactly what comes in a combo meal at Subway. Like being half-asleep or something.
Anyway, today was much much better than yesterday. There were storm clouds around me all day and they had forecasted a severe t-storm for Eupora, but I had sun and clouds all day. Then, literally just seconds after I finished, it started downpouring. Perfect timing : )
Now I am beat and I’m sorry for a somewhat unexciting blog post tonight but I’m already half asleep. Thank you to Ricky for hosting me tonight : ) goodnight!
