Today was superb and I really enjoyed it. The weather was sunny and hot but I think I’ve acclimatised now and it didn’t bother me. The route was on a dirt road for most of the day – but a very good dirt road which had very few cars on . The scenery was awesome – real wild west country with pronghorn sheep (which are really deer) springing around the canyons, prairie dogs chirping away and views for miles around.
Thanks to Justin for crewing – he was great, proving again that runners are only second best to ultra-wives for crewing!
I ran with Frank (who ran 27.2 miles – impressive for a visitor!) and Mike for the first 4 miles then decided I wanted a day of running by myself and ran just a few miles ahead of them for most of the day. We all had good runs today.
Tonight’s dinner was Mexican – I had a great burrito – but I’ve also been eating houmous and bagels this evening.
A little embarrassingly I still feel fine for all this running – have iced tonight just in case but my legs are really ok, a little tired but no aches or pains. I think they’re used to this now – but I don’t want to jinx them!
