El Verdulero

If you listen you can hear them coming as they make their way along the bumpy road. They blast the day’s catch of fruit and vegetables through a loudspeaker. We bought our fruit and veggies out of the back of a red truck. They almost passed us by but my

This is a better pace. I dropped a lot of weight (water weight) early in the race but now I’m getting into the grind. My pace should be about one and a half to two pounds per week. I have a long race ahead. I’m thankful the first few days

Move, Exercise, & Stand

Every day, the same routine: The sun rises and sets as I try to move, exercise, and stand. I’m spinning through space and other dark places, and I hang on for dear life, but who am I fooling? I’m going in circles! What if the sun neither rose nor set
