Yup, it’s summer….

Yesterday I woke up feeling sluggish and blah, I blame fireworks going off until 3am and the fact that this grandma was wiped out around 7 the night before. I knew a nice workout would make me feel more like myself and less grumpy so I headed to the gym to do some pool running.

I’ve been focusing on keeping my back straight, which is much easier said than done, but I kinda dig the challenge.

I never imagined I’d love pool running as much as I do. I can see how it can be boring, but it’s also very refreshing.

Just in case you think it’s always sunny and 70 here, it’s not. Living along the coast, it’s so weird getting used to having Indian Summers, but it sure beats 108 back home right now.

It only takes a 10 minute drive in any direction to get the perfectly desired weather. In this case we went to Pebble Beach where it’s known to be foggy more than Monterey. It’s still beautiful IMO.

Instead of trying to get Siri and Galaxy to talk to each other, we decided to do something more constructive.

Mike + Lu climbed rocks while I took it easy and snapped a bunch of pics. I’m just so happy to be able to do some of the things I love. Like walk. Smile

Then we stared at the beautiful Pacific.

And there’s no other place I’d rather be.


But let’s be real, this is really what we look like.

  1. freaking love you and mike. just sayin’ 🙂

    today its pretty toasty and dry in Denver – already 90 something.

    Yesterday I baked a strawberry pie, went to work (if you can call playing in a running store work), chatted with my mommy and went to bed at my grandma time of 8:30pm.

  2. Don’t tell anyone…but when I’m in a funk, I’ll head to the dance studio and work on some choreography. Music zones me out.

    Doing the vacay thing this week. So yesterday I put some work in, tweaked the blog, cleaned the casa, and did some rounds with my show dogs.

    Weather? Ummm I got up at 3:30 this morning to get my 13 miles in. It was already 90 at 6:30am.

    Happy Sunday J…and to the Cowboy!

  3. Working out and drinking coffee usually does the trick when I’m cranky. I worked last night, ran yesterday, lifted weights, and drank an excessive amount of coffee. The weather is great here…75 degrees and sunny! So does this mean no fracture?! So glad you can walk on it again!

  4. Laughing gets me out a funk!
    Gorgeous pictures, as usual. Someday I’ll get back there again!
    Our weather is in the upper 90’s and dry. If I can get out for my run by about 7 a.m. It’s really nice.

  5. I love love love how refreshing pool running can be. Instead of feeling like the heat is going to kill you after, you feel lovely!
