Summer Breeze

I feel like a kid starting back at school with the first day of school assignment" "What did you do over your summer vacation?" Aside from not blogging*, I've been doing a lot of the usual, such as going to work. My running has kind of taken a back seat to tendinitis in my left foot, but it's not that bad, and I'll get out and walk the dog for a mile or two at a time and try to put in some slower, longer runs during the weekends. The most I've run at any one time has been 8 miles. Instead of writing about my summer vacation, I'll just show a few photos instead.

My most recent race picture... From June at the Rock 'n' Roll San Diego Half Marathon.  
4th of July Weened - Hubs and I finally trekked to Los Angeles to hang out with my sister and her husband.  My sister and I both needed some relaxation and found it at Malibu Winery.

I finally had my medal rack mounted and put up my race medals!

From my backyard.  Tomatoes and assorted greens were great this summer.

I was selected for the half marathon.  This will be my third Nike event.
We still have weekends with Evan.  He's been joining us on some of the runs, but walking.  He's a real trooper!
Summer isn't officially over yet.  There's still more beach time to be had and perhaps a concert or two... and maybe put in more time on my feet.

Song from Wednesday, May 8, 2013:
Carry On  - Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young


*I'm mostly on Facebook now.

Welcome back to Blogland!
This post brings me to remember the words of the Rod Stewart's song "Broken Arrow":
I wanna breathe when you breathe
when you whisper like that hot SUMMER BREEZE.
Great pics. Take care and enjoy this end of summer.
