Summer returns

Whew, a warm one today! It got up to 84 in my neighborhood, making for a rather sluggish run. Here I was just getting used to some of the cooler temps, and it heated right back up again. I suppose I should simply enjoy it, because the bottom will likely drop out soon.

We are a month and a day away from the Des Moines Half Marathon! I am feeling pretty good, and I feel like I am preparing better this year than I did last. I hope to get a few quality long runs done over the next couple of weekend, and then I need to taper my training in the weeks leading up to the race so I am fresh and well-rested. I am really looking forward to it.

Until next time,
