Penned Up

My running has been minimal for two reasons. Work days the last two weeks have averaged 12 hours, stretching last night to a 16-hour day. It's hard to run when you have almost no time.

It's also unusually uncomfortable for June. Humidity has been out of sight and dewpoints are cousins, almost early August-like conditions.

I ran three miles with Pepper early Sunday and Monday mornings and then four miles Wednesday morning. I was drenched at the end of each trek. Still, they were good runs and I never tire of seeing our dog happy.

My running motivation is to keep a reasonable level of fitness through the summer, then get back at it. That's what my body is telling me, and I'm going to listen.
