I started to write yesterday, but I was too ill-tempered to get past the first sentence.  I don’t like to write when I’m feeling low.  Sometimes that’s important to share, but it wasn’t yesterday.  And last night a cold front moved in and eased the heat and my mood.


Ruby woke up in the middle of the night complaining about being hot.  I turned on the light and saw she was wearing six shirts one on top of the other.

I stumbled on a trail run this weekend and sliced my quad on a rock.  Then I tripped on very flat pavement during last night’s run and scraped the side of my knee off.   I’m a bit nervous about going out tonight.

My hamstring was giving me all sorts of trouble — right after I announced the 1st Annual Hills & Dales Invitational Marathon (July 15th).  But then a friend told me all I needed to do was role my quads.  And voila! I am healed and back to road marathon training.  (71 days)

I am beginning to write an article for irunfar about running with asthma.  I’ll be putting up a questionnaire here and on social media soon for all of you who also run with asthma.

I’m teaching in Newport Beach, CA this month.  Anybody want to go for a run?

Asa got a Nancy Drew book out of the library and is hooked.  “Attractive, titian-haired Nancy waved a sheet of paper toward her lawyer,  handsome Carson Drew, who was seated in a chaise longue beside a high rose hedge in their back yard.”  How could he not be?  (And that’s how you spell “longue?”)

Asa completed his model of the Grand Coulee dam.

Well, two days have passed since I started writing.  I’d best get going now.

Run today: 2 hours minutes easy/moderate
