Day 20 – Marfa, TX to Marathon, TX

MARCH 26, 2015

Day 20 – Marfa, TX to Marathon, TX – 56.99 miles – Elevation: +1,230 / -1,860 feet

Although today is only a 57 mile day, it has been one of the hardest days for me so far. It seems like we went from the oven to the freezer. When I woke up, the National Weather Service had issued a high wind advisory and cold temperatures warning, warning that we would be getting up to 25 mph wind gusts and it would feel like 29 degrees in the morning. And they were right!

It was hard enough fighting the wind but when we stopped for lunch my feet were numb. However, it would not be cycle touring if there wasn’t some discomfort and pain. Nevertheless, in the struggle I found a few pictures to share with you along the way.

Thank goodness tomorrow is a rest day. I really need it!
