Every single one of us possesses the strength to attempt something he isn't sure he can accomplish. It can be running a mile, or a 10 k race, or 100 miles. It can be changing a career, losing 5 lbs., or telling someone you love her (or him).
-- Scott Jurek
Old age is the time to be dangerous. Dangerously fun loving, dangerously alive . . . This is the time to do every single thing we can possibly do with all the life we can bring to it. This is the time to live with an edge, with strength, with abandon. There is nothing for which to save our energy. Now it is simply time to spend time well.

Day 19 Calzadilla del los Hermanillos to Mansilla de las Mulas
Another early day. The first 10 miles are without services so I want to get going. I'm still on the alternate route and I see no one at all for the 3+ hours it takes me to get to the first village.
After miles, a few trees
The sky was amazing
To the north there are mountains.
Lots of irrigation
Reportedly the oldest Roman road in Spain. Difficult walking.
