There's been a lot of smiling happening.
Before I share all the sunshiny details, welcome to the Weekly Run Down!
I love hosting this link-up with Deborah (from Confessions of a Mother Runner)! If you write a fitness-based blog, you're invited to join the party. The link-up opens at 8:00AM (EST) on Sundays and remains open through noon on Monday. We love reading about everyone's weekly fitness endeavors, training highlights (or low lights) and race recaps. We ask that you link back to both hosts, and we encourage you to read/comment on the other linked blogs as well...please don't link-drop & dash ;-)
Anyways, here's what went down this week:
In other news:
Friday Fashion Flair! I'm all about the basic black and white, but a little bit of turquoise can't hurt. Just don't forget your lipstick.
My favorite lily. This beautiful lily came with the house, and for many years it only had one bloom. There were a few summers, though, when it didn't bloom and I'd feared we'd never see it again. Then, in 2017, I'd just gotten home from a week's stay in the hospital, and the bloom had reappeared. The following year, it had three blooms and every year since it's had four blooms. This year, it's blooming a couple weeks later than usual, but the blooms are looking bigger than before and they smell so sweet.
And, finally, did anyone else catch the full moon? It was just the moon, myself and me Friday evening. It was another warm run - three miles in similar temps to Saturday's run, but the evening was so peaceful and tranquil! The moon had a beautiful reddish-orange glow, but it looks white in the pic (it's right below my pinky finger). I'm really loving these full moon runs...this is my third one in a row, and I hope to keep up this monthly ritual for awhile.
Anyways, that's another week done and dusted. Summer really seems to be going fast this year; hard to believe the solstice was a month ago already! I haven't really noticed much of a difference with the daylight yet (or maybe I'm just in denial)...have you?
How are things in your fitness world? Any races happening, or are you training for a big race on the Fall calendar? Has it been unusually humid in your area this summer?
