I'm headed north for my next race. I'm not posting where I'm going or exactly where I am, only where I've been. I'll probably be on the road for the next two weeks.
I wasn't able to leave until late yesterday because I had to wait on a prescription refill. I can't be running/walking marathons or backpacking in the mountains without my asthma meds. I drove until midnight and ended up in Quanah (named after Chief Quanah Parker), Texas. I rolled up to the Best Western without a reservation and asked for their best rate. She upgraded me to a suite for no extra charge. I didn't ask why, I just said, "Thank you."
It rained quite a bit last night and my car started to hydroplane. I didn't realize the tread on my tires was getting so low. I think I'll find a place to buy some tires soon. I certainly don't want to be driving cross country on bald tires next month. Should I go to Wal-Mart or Discount Tire? It'll probably be whichever I find first.
