The One With Jarritos
Location : Key West
Stopping Point : MM 10.8
As I prepped to leave Key West for the next island in the long chain of islands, I realized I’ve already completed 5 miles today. More, actually, if the mileage from the billeting office back to the FT is included.
On the C&O Canal, 5-7 miles was a good day. The difference between there and here may be due to better (lighter) packing or better physical conditioning (unlikely). The terrain in each location is identical — flat, with no elevation gain when measured over long distances.
Stopping at Taco Express, a slightly secluded Mexican food truck 🌮🌯 🚒 to celebrate this 5 mile achievement seemed appropriate.
While here, I met Phil — I think, and Georgia, co-workers from the local area on a lunch break.
The Al Pastor tacos 🌮 arrived quickly. Eating so much food will take a while.
There will be leftovers.
But that’s ok. I’m in no rush. There’s nowhere I need to be. And, this shady spot is wonderful for the soul.
