I barely finished before the cutoff time here on Day 2. Right now I do not think there will be a day 3.
I’m struggling with a head cold. My quads are shredded and the attempts today to run more than a minute at a time proved beyond painful.
The thought of doing another 26.2 miles tomorrow feels impossible.
There is an early start tomorrow that I could take and walk the distance… but right now my body screams this isn’t a viable plan at all.
Highlights and lowlights of the day:
The 4:50am bus was apparently contracted or misunderstood to be scheduled for 5:30.
The start was supposed to be onto the bike path… but unfortunately folks ran up to the road and caused mass chaos.
The solar eclipse happened. Felt like a cloud passing before the sun, but kinda neat to experience.
The views were great; I just wish I hadn’t felt so awful most of the time.
The bus back to the start line/parking left early and the late bus was delayed so I sat on a bus for 70 minutes waiting to depart after a depressingly poor course time.
But the views! The views!
