We're in the midst of marathon training, and despite having visitors in town, Kyle and I could not neglect our weekly long run.  My headache, fever, fatigue, strep throat, coughing, congestion, etc. had me dragging from the start.  Out of nowhere, Joe rode up beside us on the bike and surprised us!  Thanks to Joe, bike trickster/photographer/water boy extraordinaire, I survived the grueling 9-mile workout.   He even entertained us with hands-free and backwards bike riding.  How will we ever get through another run without him?

Yeah!  Surprise!  Joe's here!  Joe's here!

Kyle's goin' strong.  Me, not so much.

This is what running in the desert looks like.
