Hiii, August. Welcome…. and stay a while, would you? We continue to race through this year with lightning speed, or so it feels. I am sure not really having a summer break has something to do with it.
What’s going on this month, you ask? Not much. I think. August will be somewhat low-key, or at least I hope so.
+ If August could lay off with the heat and make it happen for the horrible fires to stop here in our state, that would be truly fantastic. I know it’s a bit much to ask of August, it’s midsummer after all, but it’s been so hazy and smoky here recently and it’s not fun (and we haven’t even been directly impacted by all the fires that are burning in our state).
+ I’m taking a few days off from running this week (I always take 5 rest days or so after a race) to mentally and physically recover, but I am already looking forward to putting in some miles again this coming weekend.
+ My co-worker has been bringing in a lot of ‘extra harvest’ from her garden, mostly zucchini, tomatoes, and cucumbers and I am planning to make zucchini bread this weekend.
+ I am tentatively planning to visit the zoo. It’s pretty close to where we live and ever since I started seeing the giraffes peek over the fence on my runs, I’ve been wanting to go back for a proper zoo visit. Maybe we’ll make it happen in August.
+ I also think I’ll be watching more baseball, more distracting TV shows, and less news.
What’s up with you in August?
