  • I haven’t been running much this month, and weather in the high 80s/low 90s this week sure isn’t making me want to. I hope we don’t see any more of that in October (I know we still have a few more days of it left here).
  • I was sad on Saturday morning when I didn’t get to work out with Dad before the day started (we were all up too late to get up early, and he and Steven were starting an outside project early to beat the heat anyway), so I made sure we had plans for Sunday morning. We did a loop bike ride around my house and enjoyed chatting and riding on low traffic roads!

Thanks to everyone who entered the Starbucks giftcard giveaway! picked #3 (each entry and joke counted as two), which was Shelley!

    I can’t complain about this weather enough – it totally kills my motivation. I’m really happy that it’s finally going to start cooling off for both of us this week!

      Me too! It just makes me so miserable – whether I am working out or not. (I was disappointed it was so hot when we had guests. It held us back from some things we wanted to do.) I hope it really does cool off this week!!!
