Tumamoc Hill from the parking lot across the street.
I'm trying to decide if I've been missing you or not. I haven't been to see you since September because, well, I'm lazy. I try to make excuses saying I'm too busy in the mornings and have to get kids to school or me to work. But we all know the truth, if I didn't have the Saguaro National Park Labor Day run coming up or the Get Moving Tucson half marathon, I probably would continue being lazy.
It hurt to get up you this morning. My calves were killing me. A lot. My lungs hurt. I even walked some. But with an 800 ft elevation gain in a mile and a half, who can blame me? I usually look forward to going down you, but today I just felt sick the whole way. Maybe I should eat before I run?
While it looks like a hot desert, it was only 70ºF out this morning!
Surprisingly, I felt great walking to the car. I felt like I should keep walking and go around the block or something. Weird. I'm really worried about how I will feel in the morning though. Last year when I did this the first time, my hips hurt for two days afterwards!
I will be back to see you next week for sure. Promise, cross my heart!
P.S. Tomorrow is looking like a great day to swim instead of run.
