Summer Scenes From My Run

 

I confess: my runs have been few and far between.

This summer was just a bit hectic with kids being home, traveling, and the heat. It kept me inside and pretty much not running: because lazy summer days.

And then when I did start running again, I swear the universe was telling me no, girl, noooooo.

First, I got up early, took this great runrise pic, got about a mile from the house…

and had to go back. Had to go back NOW NOW NOW.

You know what I’m talking about. Not a bathroom, porta-potty, or even non-stickery bushes in site. Trust me, I was looking.

It was awful.

But I got that pic, and made it home, so alls well that ends sorta well, right?

After that lovely run, I decided to stick close by for a couple of days.

To the treadmill and Outlander!

This didn’t suck too much.

I got caught up on my shows, finished more miles than I planned, and the treadmill still loves me.

Let’s hear it for AC!

Sooooo, Saturday rolls around and I decide it’s time for a long run. I was shooting for 4 miles, so I woke up stupid early to run before the sun.

This meant I started running when it was about 87 degrees out and finished somewhere in the 90s. All before 7am.

Arizona, man. It’s tough!

The run started off great until I got distracted by omg look at all the baaaayybbeee bunnies! Sooooo adorable—

And then I tripped, yelled MO-FOOOOO really loudly, and landing on all fours HARD- and managed an epic tuck and roll off the sidewalk.

The view I got from my back.

I couldn’t move for a couple of minutes. And, yes, I stopped the Garmin.

When I got up I looked for the darn cause of the trip: found it. Uneven sidewalk. I wanted to kick it, but figured I’d just break a toe like that.

After this I tested all body parts, things seemed to be working ok, and I moved on with my run.

I stopped looking at the bunnies. Because I didn’t need to go down again. Once is enough, thank you!

But I did stop for this:

And even though my leg was bleeding pretty nicely there by the end, I managed to finish up my 2 miles.

So yeah. Seen on my runs this summer: blood, bunnies, sunrises, and some Scottish eye candy.

I think that sums it all up.

ETA: Here you go. Because really, this is so much more pretty to look at then my busted up knee. ha!
