Today we ran south 22 miles from Custer out and back. It was uphill the whole way, both ways! The weather forecast underpredicted the heat by at least 10 degrees. Woke up at 4:30, car drop at Pringle, back to Custer, then ran our hot 44 miles. The last 2 miles in a thunderstorm, which was welcome.
After that we ordered pizza, and during the hour it took to wait for it we drove to pick up my car in Pringle, went to the grocery store for more food & ice, then we got the pizza, scarfed it, then drove an hour to Deadwood to check into our overpriced hotel.
It's been quite the challenge to run, drive, eat, sleep, resupply, and fit it all in each 24 hours! We'll just take it a day at a time.
Time to sleep!
