post pierra menta

It's still so hot here. This must be record breaking heat and drought, and it keeps going. This week after racing Pierra Menta, I am out running more than I expected. Everything feels good- not what I expected after three consecutive days of hard racing. I've been staying on the shady trails, stopping for a few photos of the sunflower fields, and finding things to jump on to break up the runs.  

The heat wave broke, briefly, and even then it was still pretty hot, but even a little cool-down and a light breeze felt like such a relief. Then back to hot.
