That 18- miler is going to be tough - I am trying not to think about it. Folks ask how we can run in the hot temperatures (although we have returned to double digits). Liquids are a must - so, we have water stops along the way. For instance, this route will take us past the Rainbow Liquor store, the Hawthorne Suites Riverwalk, Firestations #4, #13, & #16, La Quinta, Casbeer's at the Church (hose outside), Sunset Station, the Marriott Riverwalk, the Riverwalk Museum Reach boat locks (bathroom/sink), and The Pearl Brewery. That last stop is the best, because the water in the bubbler (drinking fountain) is ice cold and there are only 2 miles to go to the park to drink something more delicious.
And then I sleep.
