Treasures: the beautiful moon, a shiny quarter at 3:00 am, a heron silently flying over Little Swan Creek, perfectly located, clean and full of toilet paper Port-a-Potties, finding an Icee (like a slurpee), being in bed by 6:30 pm and eating in bed. Naresh Kumar's race pictures of the race on FB.
Today was tough. I'm fatigued. Luckily, I was able to complete enough miles to keep moving forward. We got a taste of the Vol State heat. My feet still hurt but are better. I will turn my socks inside out, they seem to be more comfortable that way, go figure.
The pre-dawn hours were perfect. Clear skies and start. There was some fog stuck to the hills. I saw two deer in a field, it was just like the beginning of the Bambi movie (before anyone gets killed), I saved a turtle from the road too.
That Icee was really good.
