11:07 PM and I forgot until now about doing my blog entry.

Getting warm and only going to get warmer. Megan is headed to Kenya tomorrow. I'm going to my parents for 7-10 days. Not sure what I am going to do the other two weeks she is gone.

PM: 5.25 miles easy, no watch

I headed down to Flourtown to do a workout but decided doing a workout was inappropriate given that Megan was leaving and it's her birthday. It was already warm and I would have got zapped by the sun. I'll move it to Friday and find a place to do it at my parents'. I expect that going from 430' of elevation to 250' should help a good deal :-)

Off. Travel day.

Drove to Maine with the boys (my cats). Megan is in Kenya and figured it would be a good time to visit as they were getting anxious since I hadn't seen them since the new year. Lots of traffic. Took 10+ hours when it's an 8-hour trip.

AM: 50' easy. At my parents'. Cool and a little rain

PM: 50' hilly

I ran up and down the Farm Road half a dozen times or so. It ended up being about 90 feet over 200 meters. I tried to get Mandy my parents' pointer to come with me because she's overweight but she didn't really care. I might see if we have a leash for her and try that. It warmed up a bit but it's dry. Supposed to be almost 90 tomorrow. It's basically Philly weather, but I imagine these Mainers will be dying of the heat.

After I did some pull-ups in the maple tree in the front yard. Did some halfhearted drills and some barefoot strides. I raced my nephew while running backward. He won. Barely.

AM: 63' easy. Stretching

Hot. I bonked a little. Bad diet and bad hydration will do that. Did some pullups on the maple tree.
