Tough day. I slept in till 0700, didn't get out running till 0800, and managed to take four hours to go 20 miles, stopping twice for the 32 oz Powerade. (Finally. Did you know if you turn right at Germann from my house you can run 10 miles and never come into a source of fluids? Not even a mirage. I was talking to Nathan on my cell when I saw the Circle K, a beautiful sight to behold). Even 75 degrees must be dehydrating as I was still so thirsty for hours after I got back.
And there was a dog. I'm not as fast as Stephen, but I did turn around and run backwards and pretend to throw something as it chased me down the road. That worked, sort of. Except when I turned back around I ate a tree...I kind of twirled into it and tried to ignore the cars driving by..who were surely laughing and making blonde jokes. I am covered with tiny scratches but that's about it. Not even my ego really cares.
My fam is flying in tonight. I wish they would hurry. I miss them.
