Summer has finally arrived to the Northwest!
Cloudless blue skies, hot weather, sunburns,
peeling from sunburns, BBQ dinners, shorts and tank tops, going to the fair, picking berries, swimming in the river, oh and did I mention hot weather? Yeah, like 105° hot. Too hot for my liking! Being outside and soaking in some vitamin D has been much-needed though. After getting back from team camp on Friday (which I’ll dedicate a whole post to once I get ahold of some more photos from my Coach’s camera!) I decided to take this whole weekend off from running and relax. More so than just wanting to enjoy the weather, I’ve come across some pain in my knee. Possibly runner’s knee or maybe just a sore spot, but either way it seemed best to take an extra day off to re-coup and get ready for another busy two weeks of work and running before the official season starts! Seeing that I’ll fill you guys in on team camp a bit later, I’m not running all weekend, and the weather is just too beautiful to stay out of … here’s a quick post in pictures! Faster to the read, more to the point, and you don’t have to read my rambling which go on and on … and on. :-)
Can’t forget to mention Galen Rupp! Such an awesome race and one that will go down in history. So proud of him and how well all our other runners are doing in the Olympics! Go Team USA!
Who is your favorite athlete competing in the Olympics? What’s your favorite event?
Hope you all are having a great weekend and enjoying the Olympics as well as the summer weather as much as I am! :-)
Until next time,
