My Left Eye Sees Ghosts

Yesterday was the 5k race through the Mojave desert, and man, was it difficult!  My body couldn’t take it, and yours truly is suffering the after effects of heat exhaustion.   I spent half of the day in bed, alternating between sleeping and watching “My Left Eye Sees Ghosts.”  Which is what people with heat exhaustion tend to do, you know.  The good news is that I finished the darn thing, even if I walked most of it.  My husband, on the other hand, won first place in his age group, and then he walked all of the way back to me with a cup of water and a chilled towel.  We finished hand in hand.  Awwwwww.  That’s why he’s my favorite man in the world.  Anyway, I went from hiking through this: (the blue tent is mine)

to running through this in less than 12 hours:

Rock on. 

Still weak as a newborn kitten.  Tomorrow I get to lie my head off on a meme.  I’m looking forward to it.

  1. I spent several hours each day over the weekend trying to convince a 2 year old he needed a nap. In all honesty, I needed a nap. That’s as close as I can come to understanding what you’ve gone through over the weekend.

    Feel better, I hate to have any advantage in the HWA battle ahead!
