Last day of school today and I have the next few months off. It's been an awesome year of teaching (my fifth), and while I'll enjoy the break, I'm sure the trend will continue where by early August I'm looking forward to getting back.
But for now, time to celebrate! Went out for a muddy trail run this afternoon. With the weather we've had this past month, you'd think Seattle's climate has jumped over our way... cool, rainy and overcast most days and only a small handful days of sun that haven't lasted long.
The heat out in California will be quite a contrast later this week. I'll have to summon my Florida upbringing to battle what's expected. Currently, the forecast is calling for temps in the mid-90s on Saturday for the lower elevations. The climb up to Devil's Thumb will be a hot one. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate with a regular supplement of electrolyte pills and hopefully I'll be fine. Hey, at least there are no wildfire to cancel the race as of yet!
Ran 4.2 miles @ 9:33/mile pace.
