Day 84, Watertown, narrow roads but a nice day out

A beautiful morning as I headed out of Nashville into the rush of traffic coming into the city, I past this lake first up and it set a nice mood in my head as I battled with little or no shoulder.

Day 211 Day 212

 

So I wanted to show you the shoulder on the road, It can go from this big wide one on a larger road and hone on the next 3 photos go right down to nothing and running with the buggy I stock out a hell of a lot , I do feel a bit bad as everyone thinks I have a baby inside and they stop quickly and hold up traffic more, sorry everyone.

Day 219 Day 224 Day 228 Day 227 Day 28 Day 27

I wasn’t feeling good in the stomach this morning for some reason and took a rest at this Wall of Honor, it was in he middle of nowhere. I really hate wars and don’t really understand why or who makes the calls and I just wish everyone could stay at where ever it is they want to be and live happy and not be a name on a wall.

Day 22 Day 21 Day 225

I found this little guy today, I got to about 2m from him before he took off and as he ran away he tripped over himself, it was pretty funny.

Day 230 Day 229

I did 32.7 miles today and made it to Watertown, Not a big place . I was hoping to get a little further down the path but decided to rest here. I got my food all stocked up and will sleep well. I caught these two shots right as the sun set. Another day done and a few miles closer to Boston.

Day 232

Day 233 Day 234

  1. Reblogged this on Vanessa Runs and commented:
    Guns, guns, and more guns. Guns have certainly been the theme for the last few days as we ran to and through Knoxville. I was expecting something a little closer to the tourism of Memphis, but it was a lot more sketchy and a few sections were scary. We did run through some beautiful forest roads and waterfalls in Ozone, Tennessee, but Pat also heard one guy either shoot at him, or shoot in the air as he ran by on the public highway.

    That incident really pissed me off and I can only hope there was some misunderstanding, like maybe he was shooting off his bicycle lock because he couldn’t remember the combination and he had to go to the market to get fresh kale. And Pat just happened to run by.

    The second incident happened in Knoxville when Pat saw a couple of plain-clothes guys banging on a door with guns out and ready. It was a shady neighborhood and he didn’t stick around to see what happened.

    As a result, Pat has been posting a lot of anti-gun ideas on his Facebook page and it has been raising quite a stir and debate, as this issue always does. I’m just trying to focus on crewing and keeping Pat safe as he navigates some shitty experiences.
    Knoxville was a nightmare to crew though. We ran right by the college. The roads were narrow, a lot of one way streets, and no place to park. Pat had to make a few turns and we couldn’t park there to make sure he turned (he did). We met him later outside of town but it was a stressful stretch. It was also really hot and no good for the animals in the RV. Cities like that make us feel like caged beasts. We prefer places we can just open the door and let the animals roam free.

    The biggest highlight of Tennessee so far was staying with Leanne and then Mikki. They were both amazing hosts and Mikki had a dog-friendly everything. Ginger and Kitty loved it there.

    Mikki is training for a body-building competition so we got a chance to chat with her about training and diet. I have a great admiration for what she’s doing. It takes a tremendous amount of commitment and dedication, but she has a goal in mind and she’s working full force towards it.

    We’ll be crossing the border into Virginia in two days! I can’t wait! It’s supposed to rain most of the afternoon today (again) but we’d like to cover another 40 miles if possible. Pat is out there right now running in the rain. These weather patters are so confusing. Yesterday was a scorcher and today it’s pouring and cloudy. Hello, spring.

    Onward!

  2. I love reading your posts. I live in Jackson, TN. I so wished it could have been to where I could have taken off work to run with you a bit. I’m living thru you while you do this journey. 🙂 Be safe and happy running!
