    Disappointing but not unexpected news - Spartan has cancelled all remaining races for 2020. .

    Ah man, sorry. Maybe just think of 2020 as a taper... year? :)

    @mbaker566 sorry for your DNF, but good call and sounds like you have a good renewed outlook.

    @katharmonic sorry for your Spartan race cancellations for the year. It will be a good thing. You'll come back next year stronger.

    4 miles again this morning. Felt better today. Nothing really hurt, which is rarified air for me 😁 Speaking of air, it was 78F and dew point of 77F! So it was misting the whole time. You could cut the air with a knife.

    @mbaker566 love love love the new hair color. I think we don’t see the benefits of summer running until the Fall and suddenly we are like wow look at me all strong and moving. On a side note, how to you like the fire pit in your picture, I look at it in Home Depot all the time because I love the look of it and wonder how it works, good, so so etc.

    Looks like the one we have. Really needs to not be on the grass even though it has legs. :) We need to get some bricks or something to put ours on.

    121.92/100 miles completed for July

    809.75/1000 miles for Run the Year Team Pavement Pounders

    I ran 6 miles today and it was a really good run. I managed to get out the door at 5:45. The weather was about the same as yesterday (with feels like temps in the low 80's, cloudy and humid), but for some reason it didn't feel as hard starting out as it did yesterday. I didn't see any skunks today but I did see a deer in the same area where I saw the four deer yesterday. All in all it was a really nice run. I was still pretty slow, but I was a little faster than yesterday, and I have resigned myself to the fact that my runs will be slow until the weather cools down and then they will probably get faster again. Maybe it just felt better since I wasn't as stressed today as I was yesterday. I had my diagnostic mammogram and ultrasound yesterday. There is a node that hasn't changed that we will keep watching and some micro-calcifications, but no biopsy necessary. Just go back in 6 months. That's really what I expected, but it is still stressful and running helps a lot.

    Thanks @PastorVincent

    We had an above ground pool and I think now that it's gone instead of fixing that spot I might turn it into a fire pit area.
