I’m starting to think about MdS as a restful vacation with a bit running thrown in. I’m not underestimating the desert...
A few more tidbits 199/365Liza
If you have the chance to pace someone during the final hour before the cutoff at Western States, you should do it. People line the street and they couldn’t be more friendly or encouraging. Carolyn got a lot of GO CANADA!!! cheers when people saw her bib. By the time we made it to the high school track, we were all smiling from ear to ear — convinced in the goodness of humanity and hopeful for the future of our country. (I did get some good The Coming War with Canada joking in before that.)
And I finally got to meet Helen! She’d hiked down from Robie Point to see us and hike us in. She is the very best, and it was so fun to chat with her. Here we are post race.
What’s making me happy:
Running: 1 hour easy
