TO HEAL THE BODY, FIRST HEAL THE MIND.Today is for observation. Where does your mind wander naturally-into fear or fantasy, humor or stress?? Follow your mind, and observe where it goes to feed itself. Do you like what you see??
Todays plan run 36 miles. Julia and Jerry joined for 18 miles of my run, they headed back to Fremont, and I planned to run a loop. It was very hot today. I left them at a water stop. I filled my bottle but forgot to fill my pack. Big mistake. I ended up climbing a ton so i ran out of water. I ended up running 3 miles with no water and it sucked. i did a 7 mile loop in Sunol than headed back the Visitors center to get water. I could of got water at Backpackers camp, but didn't want to climb up the hill. I ended up drinking 5 bottles when I got back. I filled my pack and headed back the 10 miles to Fremont. I was really worked but still moving.
I ran into Mylinh & Joe on my climb out. It was nice to see some friendly faces. I managed the climb up the Peak the last time passing 7 hikers.
The long down hill to Fremont was killing my tired legs. I'm happy I managed to stay out as long as I did. I ended up running 35 miles, it took 10:15 I stopped alot and chatted with people. I took a 10 min. break and had to lie down on a bench were there was a cool breeze blowing. it was a beautiful hot day.
I always manage to have fun even when I'm dehydrated ;)
Getting close to water..WOO HOO
