I walked into the house last night after getting back to San Antonio and told Eliot that I was really excited to get out to Bandera today for a run.
“Aren’t you teaching in Austin for the next three days?”
It really had slipped my mind entirely. (Of course I would have remembered WMI employers.)
I slept for about four hours and then got in the car to drive up here — sucking down caffeine the entire way. My heart rate is about 20 beats above normal. I know this because I just taught “Early Changing Vital Signs.” And I am groaning like an old woman every time I have to bend down to demonstrate a skill, — which is every 30 seconds. Wow, my legs are sore.
I was all excited to chat with you all about gear and lessons learned from the race, but it’ll have to wait until later. (Devastated, eh?) Teaser: Wearing arm sleeves upside down.
DNF Day 2: Still no word from North Face. Sending another e-mail.
