A fatty adjusts to altitude.....slowly

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.

After living in the desert and the rockies you would think that I would understand the importance of staying hydrated but this move has been rough. I went for my first run since moving here the other day and I thought I was going to die, just a few hundred feet and I was huffing more air than a hoover vacuum.

I am looking forward to adjusting to altitude and running along the rim of the canyon, especially at night. The stars are brilliant here and the high desert night sky never fails to take my breath away. Or maybe it's just the altitude.

  1. I guess you'll find out once your body adjusts... but I'm guessing it still will. It's beautiful out there! Enjoy!
    ps. google sky map app would be cool to use with all those stars.
