Link 1,886

• The Who: Linds
• The Where: Along the running trail, Half Moon Bay, CA
• The Link: "This might be one of my favorite hearts yet—they saved me on my long run, the makers of this heart. Longest training run of the season yesterday—20 miles. Marathon is in two weeks. I was pretty scared of this run, as 14, 16 and 18 were all awful at the end. This one was going surprisingly well as I approached mile 18 but we were on an open, hot dirt hiking trail and it was HOT. Just beyond the trail were some houses, and a woman on the porch at one. I thought, "OK, I have to ask her to refill my water bottle or I won't make it 2 miles back." She and her husband make these black walnut pieces, and almost all had hearts -- it was cool! And thanks to their kindness, I made it back and finished the 20 miles feeling good about the run. That would NOT have been the case with no water!! So, a special heart :)"
