Today's run was a maze of both positive and negative thoughts. Conditions were tough, no less than a fully fledged tropical storm came through about 45 mins after running. This meant I was wading through water up to my shins for over an hour. It wasn't so bad, I mean, it was better than running in 35 degree heat at 8am in the morning. This rain storm had some novalty value aswell, but heading further south into the wet season I will have to have my operation a little tighter if I don't want everything to get wet every time it rains.
i am fortunate enought to have a innovative company from Sweden Called SUBTECH Sports that do a 100% waterproof bag, this means I do not need to stress about my electronics getting wet in a sudden down pour. www.subtechsports.com.
today I was running to a fairly large town call Huatulco. It is a section of the coast that the Mexican govt has identified as a future tourism hotspot, as a result of this this I ran by two airports and on freshly layed roads,
It is amazing the influence the govt has over the country, when they decide to put their might behind something, it makes a massive difference, unfortunately most of the money going in the door is split among those in power.
Day off tomorrow, a few things I need to do, tick so jobs off the list.
Tough couple of days of running, stunning surrounds however.
Running has always been emotional for me, it is the passion that brought me back from a bad place in my life, I owe a lot to it, the last few days have highlighted the delicate balance between isolation and comfort of loved ones. Running all day thinking about my past and processing some unsolved issues in my life in the process is tough, amplified by then being alone at night and not having the comfort of turning to loved ones means it is an intense time right now emotionally, it is certainly emerging as one of the major challengers of this run.
