Feels Like Summer?

The title has a question mark at the end of it because I know how Cleveland weather has fooled me in the past. I think it's summer and then, BAM!, we have snow again! Ok, maybe not that extreme, but you know what I mean. Clevelanders are quite comical because as soon as it gets nice everyone is wearing shorts and flipflops and driving their convertibles with the tops down!

So, since Sunday was BEAUTIFUL. J and I spent our lunch here:


We rode our bikes down to Edgewater park and ate on the rocks overlooking the lake. It was the perfect day for it!



After lunch we decided to ride around the city some. We ended up riding 15 miles!


I had tried to run early in the morning. But after 1 mile the outside of my left knee started hurting again. I don't think I mentioned it, but it's been hurting ever since the Cleveland marathon. I've been using the foam roller on it since then, and I thought it was better, but after a mile I had to turn around and head home. I wasn't going to make it much further than 2 miles. I have to give my body some rest. Two marathons in two weeks is a lot. I have to keep telling myself that! It's not a secret that I'm not 20 years old anymore!

So after our ride, I spent some time doing this:


Hurts so good.

And, in case you didn't know, this is what happens when you try to use a self timer with a pup in the house:



And, yes, it hurts that bad - those pictures are of me trying to smile! :)

Is it summer, summer, summertime where you live??



  1. Summer has definitely rolled in to Charleston. The heat is here and the afternoon thunderstorms have started. I can see why you'd have lunch there. How beautiful!

  2. Oh no! I hope your knee gets better soon!!! At least by September! Luv u!

  3. It is sooo hot today in PA I barely remember how to function. I love the sunshine but ozone action days are not going to allow for much running outdoors. That view is beautiful!
