Not sure if this is a creation of “the Onion” or real, but it sure might get some peoples attention.

Personally getting “shocked” for not performing is a bit harsh.  I have enough self-loathing to do that if I underperform.

That looks like my car! Ford Escape?!

Yes it is!  We call it the Es-Ca-Pe.  It’s a 2014.  Titanium, 4WD, 2.0 with a sunroof.  We decided to get the works as this vehicle is our travel car, so why not have all the variables covered.  Plus we plan on having it for a long time.  I love, love, love my car!

Hmmmm

So perhaps I could have picked a better time to run?  99 degrees might have been pushing it for a workout today.

I prepared - I just wore my shorts, sunglasses and tried out the cooling bandana from Zombie Runner.  Which actually helped somewhat, that and the light breeze.

A neighbor asked if I was worried about “heat stroke.”  

I tried to channel my inner Anton Krupicka, but instead got my butt handed to me.  That was a freak’n hard 30 minutes!  BUT that is the last workout before Sunday morning!  Yippee!

Now having a mixed fruit, Mandarin orange, OJ and protein smoothie.  Oh and get my core temperature back down from a zillion!

Heat training - you and I have a long way to go.

Wednesday

Easy going day.

  • Got some errands done.  Lunch.
  • Watch a launch of a Soyuz at 2:44pm PST and then a Delta 4 launch @ 4:03pm PST.  
  • Slipping in my last 30 minute workout in between those events.  It’s going to be a HOT one.  It’s already 93 degree’s plus the radiant heat from the asphalt (hey, it’s good heat training).  It will be so nice running in some cooler weather on Sunday!
  • Set up the food for Matilda’s stay at Camp Bow Wow over the weekend.
  • Found a winery in Avila Beach we’ll stop by while Cassie and I are on our way up to Paso Robles on Friday.  Hoping to pick up a bottle to celebrate on Sunday night.
  • Tomorrow I’ll really get things organized and packed.  Loop One gear, Loop Two gear(drop bag) and also other clothes, things needed for the trip.  Lots of lists and logistics.
  • Friday will be clean the Escape, get fuel, drop off the “girlie,” set up the car and then get ready to make the journey up north.

Check in with you all later on.

Melissa shared this video, and I thought it was great to pass along.

French supermarket chain Intermarche launched this promotional campaign to help reduce food waste of “undesirable” fruits and vegetables. Rather than throw out ugly, deformed, or damaged produce, Intermarche instead sells them with a unique twist.”
