The dog days of summer are here and the Runner's Journey has no running time in now for a couple of weeks. The weather has been hot and humid making running not high on the list of things wanting to be done. Still the sun is rising and setting at different spots on the horizon now and those early mornings have that fall like appearance to them even though the temperatures will reach into the 100s during the day. These changes also change my heart. The tone of light and the slight crispness in the early morning air bring back remembrances of runs long past. The desire to pound the pavement returns and the plotting for another race returns.
One must set a goal too for the next race. Mine will be to PR in a race I have ran many many times but yet set a personal record. That will be The Carlsbad Half Marathon.
