More about running to come later this week.
Monday, conditions were sticky and humid as usual, and I pushed through it for my morning run. My foot started throbbing toward the end and I knew I was going to need some time off.
I developed a very tender spot on my left foot. Crap.
I took to my bike...but it didn't all go smoothly. Thursday I took my bike for a two mile walk when I got a flat tire.
I tried to go the gas station and get air and it cost .75 - I didn't have any money ...oh, well.

Friday I got up and tested my foot with a quick two miles, all seemed well. I was excited I was headed to meet Megan from Meg Go Run .
We met in Shenandoah National Park.
Meeting a blogger friend is a little strange, you are meeting someone new that you already know really well. Chatting felt very easy and natural, like we'd been at it for years.We got a little "lost" on the trail, and saw some wildlife, and I fell on my butt. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Yep, I made a fool of myself as soon I as met her, I hit a mossy rock and went down right on my bum, but my tush felt fine the whole time we were hiking. It wasn't until I came home and plopped on the sofa after I showered, that I realized I had seriously bruised my tail bone. It is Monday and it hurts to sit on it! I am so clumsy.
Three hours went by in a blink. I enjoyed Megan's company so much, and I could rattle on all day about how sweet she is. I realized on the way home how much I miss having an active buddy. I love walking and talking more than anything, and I could done it all day!
Sunday, Kenny and I decided to check off two more VA caverns. I blew off working out, and we spent the day doing cave tours. It is about 55 degrees in the caves, it felt so delightful :) I could stayed under all day!
The rock formations are really awesome and we took tons of pictures, but I don't have my phone wire with me so I can't add more to this post. Blogger fail...
What can I say... it is Monday, and I can not believe it is August.
How are you feeling today?!
