We're Still Running

In preparation for the marathon, we've been adhering to a very demanding running schedule.  Val's visit overlapped with three training runs, so she biked along side us under the mighty New Mexico sun.  Afterward, she noted several things: 1.) Your bum gets quite sore after ten miles of biking. 2.) Despite this, it's better to be biking than running.  3.) Once you get past the inability to swallow, the dry desert heat can be enjoyable.  That's because it doesn't leave you sopping wet with sweat following a bike ride, or any other workout for that matter.  That is one area where New Mexico has got Florida and its humidity beat.
