......Note from Keith....
We interrupt this post to let you all know how funny it is to watch Leslie running around in a frenzy trying to prepare for Australia (leaving in 3 hours)...and complete this post, and basically remain calm and collected. It's really 'tornado like'...and I'm going to go hide and stay out of the way!!
What's this?! It looks like I've been hijacked! Continuing the story, yet another glorious day and such a sweet run. I worked hard at keeping focused and moving on this day and finished, elated, ten and a half hours later. I think it was around 37 Miles of super fun trail goodness. I loved it every moment of it.
The finish line.
The next morning, I took my time and strolled my way back to San Francisco. No running this time! Surprisingly, my legs felt great but my brain was a little fuzzy with all of the noise and smells of the city. I went straight to my favorite restaurant Pacific Catch and ordered me up some fish tacos, smelly clothes, pack and all. I told the waitress, "You have know idea how happy I am to be here right now!" and I was. I completed the journey by walking all the way to my hostel downtown, where I went for yet another feed at a Vietnamese place and collapsed into bed. Happy, content, satisfied. My self-propelled adventure was one of my best holidays ever. I flew home early the next morning and slept the whole way.Hope you've enjoyed this adventure, but now I am off on another one! If any one is interested, all of my photos of this trip are here.
Gotta' go to OZ, another airport shuttle, so bye-bye!
Also, good wishes to my friends Bryon and Meghan as they embark on their own self propelled adventure at Marathon des Sables this week! Have a fun adventure friends!!
