Breaking News: It’s still HOT!
Yeah I know, it’s July. In other news, it’s almost August! Forecast for August? HOT! Might rain. Might not. Sometimes there’s Hurricanes. Sometimes they go somewheres else. Sometimes they come here. Then it’s September & eventually it’ll start to cool off. But right now, it’s hot.

Had packages waiting for me when I got home from work, I love packages. Got my Sorbothane insoles, my drymax socks, my Marware shell for my phone, & my Sennheiser earbuds! Life should be good, my runs should all be smooth, & I should be running much faster than I ever have before! Well, life’s pretty good anyway. The insoles & socks did what they do & well. The Marware shell is the best I’ve tried at keeping the phone secure & DRY. I sweat a lot. The earbuds actually were pretty great, comfortable, killer sound, what’s not to like.
As I was now able to carry my phone, I was now able to listen to Pandora! Yay! Made me feel really old & out of touch. Instead of setting it to a station I’d created, I just set it to “Alternative”. I liked what I heard well enough but I didn’t recognize any of the bands or songs. I’m such a relic.
Yesterday’s evening beach run went ok. Strong crosswind as I got started which is what you want, doesn't help or hinder but it’s nice to have a breeze. About a mile & a half in I realized it was now blowing more from my back & at two & a half miles when I turned around it was blowing hard & I was running directly into it. The run back was a struggle. Not only was it a hard steady wind, but the sand really stings. I think I lost a layer of skin & my legs felt like I’d run up a two & a half mile stairway.
