September, finally! Fall is just around the corner! I am looking forward to cooler temperatures and maybe less humidity. Tupelo Marathon is 3 days away. I am not ready, but no matter, going to run it. Training for Tupelo involves hills, heat, and humidity. In those three areas, I am ready. I printed out a 5:45 pace bracelet. I do have an out, at the midway point , I can opt to finish. I doubt I will cut my run short. Running is such a mental sport, and I am just crazy enough to finish. This race last year nearly did me in. However, it was number 9 and this year it is number 1. Tahoe Marathon is just 4 weeks away now. Ahhh, running in the mountains, in Nevada and California. It just doesn't get much better!
Are y'all tired of the pandemic yet? I certainly am! I made about 160 masks for family and friends. If I never see another one, it will be way too soon! My husband and daughter never stopped working, so I never stopped babysitting the grands. I am relieved that school is back in session. A sense of normalcy in the chaos.
I had a decent herb garden this year. I really like dill and cilantro! I dried a lot, used more. I also made sage and rosemary bundles to burn. And, tomatoes...oh the tomatoes! I planted two traditional tomato plants and two cherry plants. The cherry sized tomatoes did amazing, the others, not so much. The plants were over 6 feet tall! Caterpillars are feasting on them now. I am okay with this, I ran out of recipes. Best thing I made was a roasted cherry tomato pizza. YUMMY! Need to figure out how to grow the herbs inside.
