We Showed Up, We Walked, We Tired

Here are the facts ...   Team Udderly Pink met at my house at 6am for our scheduled 11-mile walk (it was actually scheduled for yesterday, but it didn't happen yesterday so it had to happen today).  It is the first truly long walk we've attempted - and very overdue.

As long as we were in the shade, it was bearable.  However, out in the sun it was sapping - as in energy sapping, hydration sapping, emotion sapping, and just general sapping over all.  But eventually we made it back to the house and into our cars and back to our homes.  Where we consumed great amounts of liquid, took cold showers/baths to cool our body temps, and fell into deep naps as long as we could make them. 

It was the good, the bad, and the ugly, but we got it done - and only skimmed off a half-mile at the end.  Now to figure out the 12-mile route for Saturday ...
The Good Stuff From Today:  Lindley and Everley time; training walk with Team Up and Ashley; grocery store stop along the way; getting rid of some furniture thanks to Mathieu and David; post-walk shower and nap
