It's bad!

 The lack of rain or drought, it is getting serious out here! Again I watch as many of my first year saplings die. Even though I water them there is nothing like rain!
  One thing I do know....it will rain again! The concern I have now is regarding fireworks usage. The country is often a gathering place for city folk during this specific holiday. As a runner I have come upon several sites where they have "celebrated" our freedom. Yes we are free to litter! Love the paradox of life!
  It is such a tinder box out here I am greatly concerned about the fire danger. I will be on edge as I hear the bombs burst in air and see the rockets red glare.
  Yesterday I got out early and ran my 9 miles. I am hitting lots of hills and so far the achilllies is holding up. I felt a little sluggish and my pace was a tad slower but that's okay...still averaged 10's. The heat is sneaky and can bite you like a Brown Recluse!
  Today is a rest day...thankfully...it's supposed to hit 102....record setting temps btw..
  Hope you are well! Peace! (praying for rain!)

I hate fireworks and can just imagine how dangerous it can be during a drought and with such warm temps. Praying for rain!

Tengo Hambre!

    Man I got hungry while I was running today! I guess I forgot to take in enough calories! It cost me the last couple of miles some disco...
