Last week I was complaining about heat and humidity and today was already so chilly that I can't believe it's July in Iowa! Beautiful morning for running and I embraced the chance to get in a relaxed run.
Surprised to see a Fox Snake getting out in the cooler weather but it was still spry enough to bluff a few strikes at my hand when I picked it up to observe.
Also enjoyed seeing some Goldfinches flitting around in the thistles.
With today's total of 9 miles, I reached 62 for this week. Some runs are feeling easier now so I'm hoping to continue sustained runs in prep for a September race.
