Such a lovely Sunday morning! July is off to a great start running wise; an easy 15k yesterday and an awesome 24k mountain run with 1,300 meters climbed today. I wasn’t sure what I was in for when I left home this morning but I felt so great it was impossible to turn back.
July temperatures are also off to a good start, I like the heat but it is best to get an early start; out the door before 8 both days.
Halfway up the mountain I found this wine glass, in DC it would have been a bottle of Colt 45 Malt Liquor absolutely love the distinction. 😉
I hope the forest trails stay lush and green all summer like this!
Not exactly sure where I was at this point, but it’s such a quaint village and really typical of the region. I suppose it’s more of a hamlet than a village; lots of those in the mountains.
On my final climb home, the last stretch is a very hard 200 or so meters positive increase, I heard the sound of rushing water. A mountain source rushing past under my feet! New objective: find out where it comes from and where it goes!
I bumped into an old student of mine on one of the trails and we stopped and talked for a few minutes. He was mountain biking with a friend, anyway, he mentioned that I had lost a lot of weight and he was the third person to say so in the past several days. I really thought I was doing better at getting enough calories in to balance all the sport but apparently not. Need to work on this more.
So I splurged and got this at the local bakery!
A truly delicious pear tart!! So good I want another!
Happy Sunday everybody.
