Cool 77

The Pooper and I - how many times have I started a post this way? - ran the 8.2 mile run to waterworks,
Brust Park, then around Silver Lake and home today.  This was the same route as the Swimming Silver run last week.  It was a "cool" 77 deg F with low humidity, so Pepper didn't need a rest and swim as she did last week.  We ran it faster this time, but still slower than my goal.  I want to finish this run with a sub 10min/mile pace, but I think I'll need to do it without the sniffer/squatter.

September 1'st

A new month.  The Pooper, me, heat and 3.8 miles:  we did good.  Not fast.  But, solid.  She had a solid on the way as well.  I love the looks from the drivers passing by (as we're running, not while she's stooping).  I worried a little as I was leading her most of the way, but she proved to be a trooper.  We ran at dusk so the sun didn't effect us, but it was still very hot.  This is the hottest summer I remember.

Thought I would show a recent lunch from the garden.  I love lunch time in the summer!
