|The Lighthouse we ran by.|
|It was really pretty out. Too bad my camera phone sucks.|
We stopped at the upcoming street light to stretch and give me a minute to recover. I was so hot and by that point we had the wind at out backs. Just standing there, leaning on the cold street light really made me feel better. We were almost to a gas station that we had planned to stop at to get a beverage. Becky had the foresight to bring cash. It had crossed my mind, but I thought I would be fine.
We made it to the gas station and I chugged down some Powerade. It was pretty much the best thing I could imagine tasting at that point. We only had 1.4 miles left. I could do this.
We walked a few minutes and agreed to just take it a bit slower and run the last mile to get it done. It was pretty much all downhill anyway.
I almost wanted to walk about a gazillion times, but I kept going. I was a few steps behind Becky, so I just focused on the ground and keeping pace with her.
I got in the house and stretched my legs out for a few minutes. I couldn't stand my griminess though. I decided to just hop into the shower and finish stretching afterwards.
|My delicious Powerade that saved me the last few miles.|
I ate a delicious supper of sauer kraut and mashed potatoes with some of my fake hot dogs thrown in. I have been craving mashed potatoes since I had some on Thanksgiving. Sauer kraut and mashed potatoes have been a favorite of mine since I was a kid.
|Yes, those are pickles on my salad.|
