I have not run, nor even exercised since June 10 the day of UVM.  Somehow that experience really messed with my mind and I completely lost my mojo.  I kept trying to find it and as hard as I tried could not get myself out the door to run or swim or anything.  This week my family has been on vacation in Pinetop, AZ.  It is beautiful up here.  The high temps have been in the low 70s.  The elevation is around 7200 feet, so I have felt oxygen deprived since Lake Havasu is about 500 feet. Anyways, this week I set out to find my mojo.  

I have run 3 miles every day and gotten faster each day.  I have the first couple days were tough, then I started looking forward to my morning run.  Todays run was my fastest of the week.

 3 miles- AP 7:24

I think I have found my "moj".  Hopefully the "o" will be waiting for me when I get back to Havasu.

I look forward to catching back up on everyone's blogs.  I hope you are all healthy and enjoying a wonderful summer.

I'm still looking for the "o" to complete my "moj", but at least I got out of bed and exercised this morning... and it felt good.  My lungs really appreciated the oxygen here at 500ft.
