I took my lunch early today to beat the heat. While today isn’t supposed to get over 95 degrees like yesterday, I still didn’t want to run in the suffocating heat.
I headed out at 11:00am to run the loop. I did my best to stay in the shade whenever I could.
My run was uneventful but FAST until I got to the Hawthorne Bridge.
The bridge was up. I kept running until I got to the bridge and saw that there were no boats coming, and no rhyme or reason for it being raised. Plus, it wasn’t going back down. I stopped to rest in the shade to see if the bridge was going to lower and it didn’t. They must have been working on it?
Either way, I decided to double back and go over the Morrison Bridge instead.

A co-worker gave me chocolate truffles! I was surprised when he brought them to my desk, but it was a nice surprise! I’m going to try and resist as long as I can but I will most likely be ripping into them tonight. 😉
