It’s a “first.”
I did my first solo long run on Saturday. The weather was beautiful and I started the run at sunrise. The mixture of the reds, pinks, and blues in the morning sky reminded me of the layers of colors of the Sedona Mountains. I made it 12 miles and it felt wonderful. I can still feel the IT band, but it is much better. I’ve been doing massages, stretches and exercises.
As we approached each tree where the hook and bait were located, I could feel a kick of adrenaline. A mixture of adrenaline and anticipation can be felt in your heart and stomach as the line is slowly pulled to the surface. Then all of a sudden you are face-to-face with an alligator. The shooter does his job and the alligator is pulled into the boat.
