What Happened To Summer?

Meadow Garden of Longwood

September already? What happened to summer? Oh, right, marathon training. That will suck the life right out of you, not to mention that time simply flies on by while you are running mile after mile. It has been more than a few weeks since I last posted on the blog.  At the moment, life revolves around work, running, and caring for the Mom and the dogs. Which leaves little time for side projects I’m dying to share with the readers on this blog. The Berlin marathon is less than a month away, afterwards I’ll have free time to work on other creative projects and be more present on the blog.

Had a great trip to Vancouver for the Lululemon SeaWheeze Half Marathon Festival.  Lots of running, yoga, cycling and trapeze stunts! I took over 800 photos during this trip and will have to find time to process them. I want to thank my friend Shanae for the video of me showing off my acrobatic skills on a trapeze.

Here are four pictures I’d like to share to give you a taste of my latest adventure:

Ahem…UPDATE! I would be bad karma not to mention the podcasts I’ve been involved with during this lengthy marathon training program.

Strangeworlds Travelogue and The Snark Factor on FTR Radio where I bring sanity and almond milk to each show.

    “She flies through the air with the greatest of ease. That daring young woman on the flying trapeze.”

    Managed to squeeze in a trip to Malaysia and Singapore this summer, so I guess mine was good. But, I wish we had the time, and money, for a couple of other trips.

      Ditto, Trevor!

    I agree, PapaMAS. Summer seemed endless as a child, now I get whip lash from its speedy passing.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. When I was a kid the three months of summer lasted forever. Now I am only vaguely aware of some days that are warmer than others.

    Sometimes I miss being a kid.
