Smell the Barn

This morning, I woke up at 4 am for no reason. I hope this isn’t a trend for the summer.

Adding a new piece to my maintenance routine. Roll and then apply. Trying a new CBD muscle rub from @lone_star_naturals and excited to see them open nearby!

I’ve been working through some lower back pain, associated with a tight hammie on my right side and have been using a new CBD balm on it to see what I can do to work it out. Saturday I was supposed to go down and run a half marathon with Kristin but because the weather turned foul, we decided to cut the drive short and reconvene for a few miles in town later in the afternoon. We’ve gotten so much rain lately that the ground is saturated and anything else that falls just runs off flooding the sidewalks and parks that we usually run in when trails are closed. Options are pretty slim but we made it work.

Sunday I was up early again for a run with Heather, Terry, Ben and John. We started at 6:30 and the group grew by the time we were done with our 10 miles. At the end, there were maybe 15 people with us exploring a new route through the neighborhoods around Denton High and Calhoun. It was a nice day for a run.

I’m staring down the barrel of the summer and there are plenty of things to be excited about. It is not an easy thing to go from a packed schedule to an unstructured day, I always struggle with it. This summer, I hope to keep myself focused on a couple of new skills and to write more. Next few weeks are pretty busy with race timing and a Spiderweb show at Dan’s on Saturday. It should be a blast!

Next week, I’m headed out to Palo Duro Canyon to time a race and I’m looking forward to a day in the canyon.
