When the heat gets hot

So I've been too anxious to get out on the lake route after work- so I did it this week. 3 miles at 5pm on Tues at 108 degrees. Yeah it was kinda miserable but wonderful at the same time. There's always a little breeze blowing around the lake. Yesterday I did 3.5 at 6p, walked the last 1.5, and went over two bridges and was rewarded with this view. And it was only 103 and in the shade.

Lord knows I still ain't rich
And I wear the same old jeans
But the rocks that they keep throwing are the ones that build my dreams
- Life of Dillon

Two god awful miles on the treadmill tonight.

It counts goddamn you

Tonight after two margaritas I went for a 5 mile power walk around a lake under the Texas moon.

I don't recommend running

After Texas BBQ. Just something to keep in mind based on my experience tonight. It would be a blessing if farts actually worked as propulsion.

Every time you're feelin empty
You better thank your lucky stars
Cause if you ever felt one breaking
You'd never want a heart ❤️

Flowers keep on flowerin

Three more today and I was quite a bit more tires than the last two days but I picked some beautiful sunflowers and now I'm going fishing with my new rod and bait!

Lake song. Again.

Now we arise
To curse these these young suburban villains and their ill-begotten children from the lawn
- Decemberists, Lake Song

This line always makes me laugh and this is one of my most favorite songs, particularly apropos this weekend as I run around the lake. 3 yesterday and 3 today. Feeling stronger baby.

Come to me now
And on the station wagon window set the ghosts of your two footprints that they might
Haunt me when you're gone
And when the light grew dawn
You were forever gone
