  • Is there a rock in my shoe?
  • Alpacas are super bizarre-looking critters, kind of like a the bastard love child of a llama and a rabbit and Twiggy. Slutty rabbits. Have they no sense?
  • Combined smell of bushes on corner resemble Sarah Jessica Parker’s ‘Lovely’ perfume to a remarkable degree.
  • Thirsty. So thirsty.
  • Why is a small dirt road called “Palamino Parkway”?
  • Stared at rusty puddle for a long time before realizing that drinking it may actually make matters worse.
  • Hot. So hot.
  • Broken – but still alive – turtle on the side of the road. Wondered if I came back and duct taped its shell back together if it could live out its life that way? Could it borrow somebody else’s shell a la a hermit crab? Realized answer was probably ‘no’ on both counts. Sad.
  • Saw water in the distance. Dropped to knees and crawled toward it in my tattered running clothes. Realized it was a mirage. Got up and continued running.
  • Cows stink, and on a humid day they stink more than usual.
  • Sweaty. So sweaty.
  • Pulled giant knot out of my ponytail. How long has that been there?
  • I wait four miles into the run for the line ‘If you ain’t got no money take your broke ass home’ and after it’s come and gone, I kind of don’t want to keep running any more.
  • Considered flagging down passing cars and asking if they had some water or another beverage they could spare.
  • Possum in the middle of the street (fresh road kill last Wednesday) now looking very ‘ashes to ashes, dust to dust.’
  • I think my eyeballs are sweating. Or maybe that’s just tears?
  • Only breeze of entire five miles  provided by a semi-truck going by at 80 mph. Thanks. Sort of.
  • It’s all I can do to put one foot in front of the other.
  • Soooooo thirsty. What was I thinking!?
  • Home!
  • Great run. Can’t wait to go again on Thursday!
