Great Things About August

The days are getting shorter… Fall is right around the corner.

Great Things About August:

  • Lots of local fresh fruit and vegetables.
    The return of the crisp apple.
  • A rest month – no scheduled races.
  • Planning new running goals for the Fall.
  • Dog days of summer – hearing the hummer before he arrives at the feeder.
  • County fairs – curly fries and “Wac-A-Mole!”
  • Buzz of college football - fall camps, seniors, freshmen and juniors.
  • A splendid Total Lunar Eclipse: August 28th (In the wee hours of the morning.)
Ran 5.4 miles along the river today – nice steady pace. Noted a surprising number of runners, walkers and bikers along the way. All enjoying the morning ~
