Come on now, not that kind of hot. This kind of hot...




It was hot today. Not the 100s we had at the first of the month but 25 degrees warmer then the run yesterday. I took my fuel belt hand held water bottle and it wasn't enough. Just on three miles I got really hot and thirsty. I was on the roads the whole time so that makes it a little worse. Not feeling as good as yesterday but got the miles in.

I had two dog problems today. One dog was just on a long chain in his front yard. Of course I couldn't tell that when he was lunging at me and barking. The 2nd was a little bitty dog which in my experience are often worse. He caused me to take a little detour through the softball field. I am sure it would all be comical to watch on you tube.

Two other things I thought about on my run. One, would it be wrong for me to take apricots from a tree that is so full it's branches are weighed down? Meanwhile, apricots are rotting in the street underneath it. Second thing: if you are watering your yard with a water hose, would it be okay for me to ask you to fill up my water bottle? (what if the hose is just laying in the yard running with no one around?) You should be proud that I didn't do either but if I did...

I would for sure take apricots from an overloaded tree with others rotting on the ground.
Without a doubt, I would take water from a hose. I've been known to do it from a hose that's not even ON! When you need water, you need water. ;)

I agree about the apricots - in fact, can you go pick some now and freeze them for me?

And the water - running by a sprinkler - when you can literally smell the water in the air!!

Hope your back get better soon - but while it's out, you better TAKE IT EASY!
