This weekend was the first weekend we had some heat in the PNW. I know we broke records, I belive parts of the area hit 90'. Craziness considering that about 3 weeks ago it was snowing! So I went out for my long run on Sat AM and was shocked that at 8am it said it was mid 70's. As I ran with friends the talk ofcourse was how hot it was. I have always liked cold weather compared to hot, I like that you can always put on more layers if necessary. When it is hot, I can't really take off layers, well I guess I could but I am not comfortable with that scenario. I see people running in just a sports bra, but well folks I don't think that will be happening any time soon with me. Rest assured I won't be running in the little underwear things either. I know I know you are all suprised by that, and relieved.

We had a fun weekened around the house. The boys camped out side in the tents. I believe we were the only people in our 'hood that sprung up tents in the backyard! I forgot to get pics, darn it. The funny thing is we sent up the tents and get John and Detrix settled in and what do they do while camping? They watch a movie from our portable DVD player. True roughing it folks! Josie didn't make it to the tent on Friday night, she fell asleep next to me in the house.... she did make it out on Saturday night.

Too fun.

Ran 8.6 miles Sat

Congrats on the nice long run! The heat is coming no doubt. We are in the 90's all weeks. Luckily, no running for me for a few days. I bet the lil camping trip in the back yard was fun. What a way to rough it guys..LOL!

That's a veritable heat wave ;-)

DVD player, refrigerator, and air conditioning... Now THAT's my idea of camping :-)

The Hilton is my version of camping...
When I went to Portland in July 03 it was over 100 degrees for 3 days. I left Atlanta for that?

WTG on the long run.
