Sorry folks, but this is my second post of the day. As I mentioned yesterday, I messed up the menu bar. This has now been fixed by my wonderful sponsor, Next Digital. However, while I backed up the posts from previous days, I forgot to do so with my post from this afternoon. Therefore, I will write a quick summary of it now.

In brief, my first exposure to Albuquerque was over forty years ago, when Bug Bunny “shoulda taken a left at Albu-koi-kee”. I’ve kinda wanted to visit the city ever since, and today didn’t disappoint. I ran in along a cycle trail that paralleled the Rio Grande. There were strong hints of Europe in many of the things I saw and smelled. Great weather and a great day. I even got to take that left turn that Bugs missed.

It was a planned short day, so I should be feeling alive tomorrow.

I am working on providing a map facility on the web site that shows exactly where I have already run. This has been produced by the amazing Jimbo. It’s coming soon, so stay tuned.

As of today I will essentially be heading north for the next couple of months (with an easterly component, of course). Lots of great running to come.

PS Does anyone know of any other real places that Bugs Bunny visited, besides Albu-koi-kee?
