Today was tough, well that’s not actually true I made it tougher than it needed to be by being in a foul mood. It started from the second I got up. I didn’t want to get out of bed; didn’t want to get ready; didn’t want to leave the motel; didn’t want to leave the van at the start; didn’t want to start running…. you get the picture. I had proper ‘CBA’ (not Cost-Benefit Analysis!).
It was actually a nice day with a lovely trail through Des Moines along the river and, apart from a nasty 2-mile road section, a pretty good route. I walked and jogged in my foul mood all day; poor Mike got some of the brunt of it, and Steph also saw the narky side of me. Sorry guys!
So day 50 is done; I think that might have been part of the problem – with 30 days to go it feels like we’ve still got a long way to go and it’s been so long since I was in London with friends and seeing family. Blimey I might even be a little bit homesick, just a little. Good news is my phone’s back working!
Tonight we’re staying in Colfax which has had a mains water burst – so no water!! Apparently it’s coming back on in an hour or so (it’s now 20:20); I’m on the radio again in 15 minutes; hope they can’t tell I’ve not had a shower yet!
