Day 34

Today’s Miles: 31.60
32 Running - 2 off - 0 travel
Total Running Miles: 898.93

Almost hit 900 total miles today. If I had actually known I probably would have did the extra mile, but it’s not that big of a deal I’ll pass it in the morning as I’m sipping on a Naked Green Machine and getting into the pace of the day.

Tomorrow will be my last running day till I get to Peru. It’s just how the schedule ended up working out. I’ll end up about 20 miles short of the original plan but that is an easy thing to make up with as much distance as I have left.

My next goal with mileage is 1300. This would put me with 15000 left. I should hit it within the first two weeks of South America.

* Today was pretty much a trail run. It was 29.7 miles of grass about ankle to shin high at any given point. I had a mile of sidewalk and a mile of shoulder to the road and that is it. The ground was very uneven, every piece of rubber from a tire looked like a snake, and traffic was crazy busy all day. The people on the road today had zero and I mean absolutely zero kind bones in their body. Some of them even moved closer just to honk and throw their hands in the hair, some on their phones and did the whole surprised jerk of the wheel once they finally looked up and realized they were not between the lines, and some just stayed close and speed up. It was nuts. I bailed towards a ditch twice today.
But with uneven ground, a slanted surface, tall grass and weeds, crazy drivers, and running in the heat today was an interesting day. I felt great.... but given the circumstances it made for a long day.

I never thought I would get on a 4 lane highway, that is one of the busiest roads leading to Myrtle beach and there be not only no shoulder but also no where for cars to really pull off. It was a total mess.

I have to give a shout out to that tangerine slushy that melted to quick but got me through the day.
It was because of you I made it to where I needed to.

Once in Myrtle beach I’ll have an interview on the 5th, and then be at Black Dog Running Store for the rest of the night. Come swing by!

To my vets:

In our personal and professional lives, we are constantly hit with one adversity after the other, most of which we have no control over. But the four things we have total control over is how we react, how we adapt, how we breathe, and how we take action.
