Hot Hot Hot

Five Day Forecast
Sunday is my triathlon.... do you see the predicted temperature?  Well, at least it won't be cold getting into the water at 7:00 a.m.  The running portion will probably be the walking portion for me.  And I will carry water.  

I am excited about the race.  I feel much, much, much better.  And I appreciate your well wishes... thank you.  That accident was scary, and I am having nightmares about it, but I think I am on the mend.   I got out and rode my bike yesterday and today I will run 3 miles for the first time since the wreck.  

Here is the most amazing thing to me:  Remember when I said I was done with long distance running?  Well, now that I have stopped for a while, I LONG to get out and do a 10 mile run.  I really miss the mental state you get into when you are running for a long time.  So I found another half-marathon I want to do.  My daughter just rolls her eyes when I tell her this... she rolled her eyes when I told her I was done running and now she rolls her eyes when I tell her excitedly about a half-marathon I want to do in September.

It is the Boulder Back Roads Marathon and it just sounds wonderful.   Have I lost my mind?

Just surrender, Mary! You'll be happier! OK. Here's a secret for you. Get done with your triathlon BEFORE IT GETS HOT :-) You're welcome ;-)

That does look hot! But are the lows the numbers below the 100s and 90s? Because to have a low of 68 is dang nice! That's why I love CO; there's no humidity, so at least it cools off at night.
