What a crazy day.... started with me missing the group ride so I went ahead and just did on my own with 0 support. 100 miles of the keys 🖒😎 2 flat tires along the way were just fantastic, wind in my face.. yeah no breaks today. So I get to key west about a half hour before the paddleboard race and I have nothing to change into becuase my friend was MIA somewhere so I run barefoot to the nearest store to buy this super stylish baithing suit because I wasn't going out there with bike shorts.. would look like I had a dump in my shorts. Then the race starts.. I'm stuck on the beach at the start for 5 min because I didn't reserve one early enough. So I'm hoping for a no show. Fortunately there was and I was able to get out there thanks to @lazydogkeywest .. It was a really long paddleboard race so by the time we finished I had about 20 min to the run. I thought I would have enough time to ride my bike to find my friend.. but that wasn'in the cards. So I take my wallet, phone charger, phone and a pair of socks and stick in my shorts and head to the start barefoot. And I figured I'd see a store along the route or something... but after a mile in I was like eff it I'll endure it and just run the whole thing barefoot lol .. lots of comments along the run Lmao .. then after the race I'm stuck trying to find my friend again for a good hour (sprint sucks).. I was walking around in bike shoes cause I couldn't be barefoot anymore. I was severely sunburnt, dehydrated, tired and I was stuck in the same gross clothes for abour 14 hours! Finally back at the hotel after convincing the lady to let me check in without him (Thank God) Running in that baithing suit chafed me pretty good uggh. feeling accomplished though! There were reasons not to finish from the start and all throughout the day .. but I never got frustrated. I took the punches and just delt with them. At no point did I consider not finishing what I had started just out of pure stubbornness. Not not sure when I'll be able to move properly again.. I'm sure I'll have blisters on my feet, my ass will hurt for days, I'm sunburnt and my legs are torched.
Thanks if you read this whole thing 💪💪💪😎😎🤙
