I need a nap. On a beach. In a hammock. Have I said that before?
I have a trail race tomorrow. Oops. I am hoping it is more fire road and less trail but we shall see. I know there’s a 350 foot climb at end of mile 2. What goes up must come down right? What else is it hiding? And I just read that we get to run through a barn so woo hoo!
Something about the fair always brings a heatwave to town. So let’s double the town population ( at minimum), make traffic nuts and weather 110. Yes. Don’t get me wrong, the fair does a good job and I’ve learned over the years that our small town has a damn impressive fair but by the end of 12 days I am over it. It doesn’t help that the fairgrounds are more in the middle of town than you would think. But my funnel cake made it worth it.
My boss is gone for the next few weeks so it’s back to not being able to leave the building for a while. In a way that’s a good thing- can’t be tempted to run down to Burger King for a quick meal on my lunch anymore. Besides, I rarely left during lunch anyways.
Oh and remember how I complained about my lack of reading?? I’ve since read 2 books!😀
