ONE FOOT IN FRONT OF THE OTHER...

....that's what gets us where we want to go. I am tired tonight. I haven't done much. Yesterday when we arrived at our overnight campground (not in El Paso, after all... in Deming, NM) I shoed up and ran 5 miles. No big deal. Today we traveled again, landing in Tuscon, AZ. After we set ourselves up I took out my bike and rode 8 miles (4 out and back) to plot out a route for running. When I got back I realized, duhhh, I don't have to pre-mark a route, I carry a GPS. Oh, well, I got in an 8-mile bike.

However, that was in preparation for an 8-mile run, hopefully tomorrow, and at the moment that is daunting. I think I need to go to bed early. What I REALLY need is a very long, very hot, very deep bath. But we don't have a bathtub. Neither does the campground. It's a rare campground that has a hot tub, and this isn't one of them. The best I can do is go over to the shower house and take a long, hot shower. This is subject to how hot the water gets... in some places it's not very warm.

Maybe I'll just go to bed early. Running will look better tomorrow.

8 mile bike sounds beautiful right now (yah, it's 30 something!). Good luck on the run, Ellie! :)
