Sweat and dirt and trails and looking at your reflection in hotel bathroom mirrors and seeing a strong motherfucker and trees and goofy elated from having a decent run selfies and butt sweat angels.

This run was 100% mentally better than last week, and I’d say 50% physically better. The conditions—heat, humidity—were largely the same, but I got up earlier, did my best with positive thinking, walked when I needed to (and I only needed to a couple times this week), and did the damn thing. And it feels good to have finally beaten a long run instead of them beating me.

I’m fucking zonked now and have a hot date with my couch and my compression sleeves. Jimmy John’s is making its way swiftly toward me on a cloud surrounded by baby angels (or is coming via Michael…same diff). If there’s a Law and Order: SVU marathon on tv, I will have completely won this Saturday.
