    This is the most wonderful time of year! I love the heat and humidity! Yet I still get out earlier due to my advanced age! 4.4 miles! Hope you are well! Peace!

    So, I am still alive! 3 years without a blog post? Needless to say we have all been stressed, pressed and distressed due to the pandemic. I actually have kept running throughout this mess. I did have the covid in December but bounced back quickly. I managed a first place age group in a 5K last weekend. Seemed that the numbers of runners was low....covid fears? 

   Anyway, I'm still running and fighting the good fight. I will be fully retired in 5 weeks so I hope to notch many more first place awards! Ha! Keep running! Things are looking up!

     So, we've been getting missed by all the pop-up showers and now drought has come. Trees are soaking up all the dew and seedlings are beginning to suffer and perish.
     Rain is much needed. I have adjusted my training schedule to 4 days of running this week. I have had three runs so far and did 7+ miles each run. I'm putting up a good fight against this plantar fasciitis!  Hope you are well! Peace!

    So I ran a 5K this past Saturday. It was a decent event. Limited swag and perks but I enjoyed the time with friends. About 150 participants braved the heat advisory. Yes, it was 83 degrees when the gun went off and the heat index was certainly higher.
   My goal was to survive! I knew I'd had limited speed work so as the gun went off I settled in with the slow end. There were some very tight sidewalks so I just slowed down and waited until the field thinned out before I tried any pace. I managed to stay steady and no one passed me and I picked off many folks toasting out.
   So, I got second in my age group out of six. Finally beat some of those guys who always beat me! The heat seemed to zap us older folks...the young ones still ran fast!
   I was going to take some rest days but I went out and got a 7 miler in today....slowly! Hope all is well with you! Peace!

Older slower uglier

          Be glad you can still run! That's what I keep telling myself as I slog along. Today the humidity is very intense! We aren't getting any rain but we are humid! I got out late today and paid the price! Yes I love the heat but I am getting older and it zaps me quicker. So 5.2 miles today on top of the 7.1 yesterday. I am planning on running a 5k this Saturday. I have no idea how I will do, I do believe I will complete the distance but in regards to speed....well we will see. Hope you are well! Peace!

      Tired of foot probs! I've been dealing with plantar fasciitis and it's getting old! My running has not suffered because my prevention techniques are working but it is wearisome! Oh to be in my 30's again!! I used to run with reckless abandon. Not, not so much...but at least I am still running. Today was one of those good days. It's when you seem to slip into a zone of ease and stealth. Your running is effortless and supple. I loved it! 4.9 today. Rest day tomorrow! Hope all is well with you! peace!

    The sound a bug zapper makes when an insect gets zapped....ZZZZIT! That's how I feel! It is terribly hot, humid and dry!! It is only June! What will August be like? Kinda worrisome! Needless to say I am praying for rain! I slogged a 6.5 miler in the sun and heat....loved it! Hope you are well! Peace!
