Racing in the Summer Round Up 12K

Meeting "Happy Trail" and "Run with Jill" bloggers

Running in Garden of the Gods

PLUS

Lots of great veggies from the garden
Lots of time to do a ton of reading
Time to spend with family and friends
Personal training sessions with my son
Time to make cards
White water rafting
Great runs on the Burlington Bike Path
Another Bloggy Meet Up and Lots of great races including

Silks and Satins where I met Darlene from My First 5K



A reignited appreciation for how much fun biking is

But now it's time to head back to work and school has always signaled for me, the end of summer and the beginning of fall, no matter what the calendar actually says.

That is a wonderful recap of your summer! Stunning photos with stunning memories.
Ryan Sandes is an elite and is a bit of a freak when it comes to desert running. He can really push hard through the most harsh conditions and heat. He has won numerous multi-day desert races.
