Yeah, right! Ain’t no snow flurries in this neck of the woods! Not even a flake, I’m sorry to say. But, I know that sometime in January or February, when we are out on the trails suffering in the freezing cold someone is going to say “Man, I could sure go for one of those August 90+ degree days right now”. Well, get over it. Its hot and we are running this evening. Period.
Need I remind everyone that you should be sucking down H2O all day. You’ve got a bladder. Use it! Worse case all those fluids will lead to frequent potty breaks which will get you out of those booooooring meetings, right? I’m trying to look on the bright side.
