I like to get out my snakes for some outdoor enrichment time but we have to watch them closely.  Here is my youngest watching our anaconda for me.  When the snake gets too far away, we have to bring it back to the center of the yard.  No - he did not pick up the snake - we just posed him for the photo.

Took a break from work to clear the head - I am just not in the game today. Nice walk but it is getting hot.

I have 4 runs planned today so it should be a fun but exhausting day.  This is my last big day before the Flaming Foliage Relay during which I will run over 24 miles in three segments in 24 hours.  My second leg is a 12.5 mile run of Georgia Pass which is over 11,000 above sea level.  I am running with a camera!

All runs today are commutes:

  1. 4.3 mile run to bus stop - COMPLETE
  2. 3.5 mile run to brain therapist - COMPLETE
  3. 2.2 mile run back from brain therapist - COMPLETE
  4. 4.7 mile run home from bus stop - COMPLETE

My lunch run  at Mile High Stadium 6 hours before NFL kick-off. The grimace is from the sun and the hard effort I just put in running around the stadium. Aren't I attractive?

Ran to my brain shrink appointment this morning.  We decided to stick with the same meds but bump up the doses.  I am okay with that - I started feeling better and then bam! I was back in the cellar.  Doc thinks increased doses should help this.  I think so too.

It felt DAMN hot on the run and when I got back to the office and checked the temp I know why - 95 degrees hot.  Good run despite the heat - over nine miles total today.

I wish there was a filter that would add a tan to my paleness:

The singletrack I got to run - not much of a singletrack though:
