On Thursday, Meeka came into the office and with her body (paw on the chair), soft whine and eyes said, “Isn’t it time to go trail running, pleeeeeease?”
Yes, it is. Let’s go before it gets too hot.
Colorado has gone from cool weather, rain and snow to highs in the 80s and 90s.
The upside to this small window of transition, before the heat burns everything to a brown crisp, is that the hills are blooming. The Thursday run was easy and the training plan called for taking plenty of photos.
I admit I don’t know if the blooms are flowers or noxious weeds, but they did make the run more beautiful than normal.
Enjoy your holiday weekend ~
