Back to movin'

Today was an excellent 35 mile day over rolling mountains with great views. The weather was sunny, and cold at 34 degrees at the start, and then warm, then rainy, then cold, then sleet made a guest appearance, then a little hail, then it came back full circle to sunny and cool. High today was low 50s.

Other than the strange spectrum of weather, it was a bit of a strange day in other areas as well. I saw three dead dogs, and four dead skunks, not cool. 14 people honked at me. I'm not sure if it was because they've never seen anyone running or if I had some leftover peanut butter and jelly smeared on my face. Either way that was wierd and I didn't taste any pb&j when I checked. Then I saw 11 hypodermic needles in about a quarter mile. Super not cool.

All in all, strange day BUT at least I got to run. Good news.

There's a mountain over there somewhere.

  1. I am so happy you got back to running again. Keep it up. I think the people might be honking at your new beard.

  2. All of what you saw sounds fairly typical of Arizona.
