It was beautiful, but most of the views looked like this. Long, winding paths surrounded by trees and long blades of grass. I was entranced for about an hour before it all started to look the same.
I saw some turks.
I only packed one bottle of water. Ironically, it was around this time that the fact that I ran out of water started to get to me. I could have drank that entire bucket of horse water, easily.
More water that I couldn't drink.
Thank God for Clif shot blocks. What I didn't bring in water, I brought in Clif products - I packed bars and shot blocks galore. After running out of water and sweating it all out, this girl needed her electrolytes.
I hit the "whine wall" here. I swore, jumped up and down, and complained about the heat and the feeling that I wasn't going anywhere. It all felt like one continuous circle of woods and sandy paths and lizards.
Seven miles later and I heard the sounds of people. Seven miles later and I almost raced to the car with excitement. Seven miles later and I would do it again in a heartbeat. In fact, I think I will soon.
Oh, did you want to see some food?
My breakfast this morn'. Protein OIAJ (1/3 cup oats, 1/3 cup each water & coconut milk, 1 tbsp rice protein, 'nilla, whipped banana and strawberries) topped with extra banana, strawberries, flax and cinnamon. There are few things better than scooping up every bit of nut butter and few things worse than realizing all your nut butter is gone. Farewell, sweet cashew butter.
