A Great weekend of running out at the Bar None. Yesterday found new distance pr’s for Jed and post surgery Linda, and my longest run since the 10K in Grand Rapids 6 weeks ago. Only 6 miles, but we’re doing this right.
Triathlons are dominating the race calendar now anyway, very few road races to choose from. Lots of people hitting their bricks this weekend. Ambitious work in this heat to be sure. Two Rules: 1) Hydrate to frequent potty breaks. 2) Wear light colored, breathable, even loose fitting training clothes.
The Midnight Madness Team Challenge in Ames, IA was Saturday night. David Bohlken reports running 34:02, a twenty second personal best. Nice work David. I’m still hunting for individual and team results.
Tyson Gay. Dumbass.
Mulan? Cried. The Two Towers? Cried. The Descendants? Cried. Hunger Games? Cried. Edward Scissorhands? Weeping uncontrollably. I rarely see a movie where I don’t end up teary eyed or sometimes even bawling like a baby. Not sure what that speaks to but is surely some indication that my heart is not made of stone.
Good Complexion. It seems that this country air, fresh vegetables, hard work, and good loving have taken years off my stern countenance. Asparagus is up. Swiss Chard and spinach and lettuces too. Carrots, beets, bok choy, and radishes teasing with great promise. Cantaloupe and Watermelon, yep. Pole beans, check. Peppers and tomatoes blowing up on the Yutan plot. Will start the Fall planting in just 3 short weeks. Big Thanks to Jason Zakaras for the sweet addition to my endeavors.
