Day 1 – Kate and I drove down to the Mexican border Sunday night. We got as close as we could to the border while still being on the coast. We could see the border wall with search lights where we stayed the night. We heard helicopters flying above us all night. Lots of things were going through our heads, as if the run wasn’t enough. In the morning we took one last picture and off I went while Kate cleaned up the van. Day 1 was hard but nothing was sore and I felt fresh even though some dehydration still lingered from the trip to Mexico. By mid-day temperatures were hitting 32 degrees, we took a longer than normal break around lunch during the hottest time of the day, we’ll be doing this every day.
Completed 58 kms – stayed overnight in Del Mar, CA
