I’m starting to think about MdS as a restful vacation with a bit running thrown in. I’m not underestimating the desert...
I had a stream of sweat running off the brim of my hat today during my run. It was impressive — mainly because I wasn’t sure how long it could go on before I fell over like a desiccated raisin. I lasted three hours with some very speedy friends and then took the rest of the run to the treadmill so I could do some sustained downhill running. I spent the rest of the day in a heat induced torpor. I think it might have hit 90 today. I’m not complaining. It’s south Texas. It’s Hot here. And I’d rather my clothes get wet from sweat than cold rain. It just seems like Hot arrived a bit early this year. So I guess I’m whining.
I’ve been following the search for Micah True as best as I can today too. He disappeared right in the NOLS course area where I’ve worked a number of summers. I hope all turns out well.
