I’m starting to think about MdS as a restful vacation with a bit running thrown in. I’m not underestimating the desert...
Running was the easy partLiza
8:00am-2:00pm: Teach (Pretend to have an asthma attack and broken clavicle 7 times for students’ final practical scenario.)
2:00pm-3:30pm: Drive to Inks Lake for 60k (More on that once Asa goes to bed.)
3:30pm- 7:00pm Help out, visit with friends, and introduce my co-instructor, S., to the ultra-running scene. It’s her first trail race. (More on that later too.)
7:00pm-1:30am Run and fertilize landscape.
1:30am-2:30am: Sit with foot in bag of ice and eat Jelly Bellies.
2:30am-4:00am: Drive S. back to Austin to catch 7am flight. Screetch to stop in front of large deer on highway.
4:00am-7:00am: Drive to San Antonio to pick up Asa from sitter (Frequent rest breaks because I can’t keep my eyes focused.)
7:00am-12:00pm: Happy reunion and naptime countdown begins (4 hours 59 minutes)
2:00pm- 7:30pm: sandbox, pool, library, and bedtime countdown (2 1/2 hours to go!)
Running 60k in the dark was certainly the easy bit.
