Summer will be reduced to two days this year...

Yes, yes, I realize we're not even into the actual true summer dates yet, we're still a month away, but, and I mean BUT, after this horrid spring, when summer weather actually comes, you have a certain expectation, a demand really, that it stay longer than two days! But it wasn't to be. After two sweltering days over the weekend, it was back to a steady, if humid, rain today. Blah.

But the weekend! Wow. I was over at the 'rents place in Wapato and mama mia, it was toasty. When I ran on Saturday morning, at about 11:00 am, it was around 94 degrees. I was running on Orchard Way, a little strip of two lane road that's almost exactly a mile long from start to finish, which makes it nice when you're going for a four-mile run.

Yes, it's a dead end.

No, there was no shade to be found. None.

But there was a bunch of absolutely gorgeous wild roses.

Hopefully, it will warm up again for the weekend's races. Get out there and run.
