16 miles on the trails solo this morning.  It was a tough run because it's heating up.

I'm starting a recovery week now for the next 9 days and will be doing it in Turks and Caicos.

Turks and Caicos, what's that, some kind of casino in Vegas? What kind of recovery are going thru?

I'm relaxing on a small island south east of the Bahamas. I had a nice hard 5 week running cycle so I decided to reward myself. No really we're here as a graduation trip for my oldest son. So far I haven't run a step and I've mostly just relaxed on the beach with the kids.

Have a real nice graduation week and end!

You and your tropical paradise vacations. LOL.

You can take me next time.

I could use some quiet time by the beach under the shade of a palm tree swaying in the gentle breeze. Watching storm clouds building on the horizon, which are slowly changing different hues of red and orange, as dusk falls while the sun gently dips lower and lower, until the last piercing ray of sunlight vanishes into the sea. Tiki lamps silently glowing behind me. The occasional burst of laughter being carried with the wind from other beach goers, along with scents of various tropical dishes being prepared a short distance away.....Oh, sorry, I...I got carried away with my wild imagination again.

Dale, you should be a writer. That's good stuff!
