THE LONG, WINDING ROAD



That 2-hour run you see planned for today in my sidebar... here's some of it! Although I still feel as though I'm living on the moon, I'm getting to like the moon. Moonscape, um, landscape, is very beautiful, especially against an incredibly blue sky. Now, this cow... well, this bull... I have no idea what he was doing in the middle of the desert. I didn't see any evidence of a ranch or anything nearby. But there he was. Maybe there's so little to forage on in the desert that a ranch can only have one head of cattle?

Stats: Moving time 2:03. Total time including stops for pictures, drinks, squirting water out of my Camelback tube for Journey (she drinks the moving stream of water, has become very proficient) -- 2:20. Distance: 11.5 miles. A couple miles were on gravel road which isn't as efficient as asphalt; there were a few long stiff hills. It was a great run though and I do feel now as though I can run the full marathon at P.F. Chang's RNR Arizona.

Remind me of that next time I say there's no way I can train up for it...

Great pics, and what a run!

Was reading your posts about living in an RV - a definite eye opener for me.
