You would think summer is coming to end, but in my neck of the woods the warm weather is holding on dearly. There were a few exceptions though, but overall the second half of September and the beginning of October make it feel more like summer than fall. Last Monday was such an exception. We got hit by a rare late season hail storm and what a hail storm it was. It looked like a disaster zone once the storm had moved out. Dealing with the aftermath was no fun. My wife’s car got hit pretty bad and the insurance appraisal came out at $6,000 in hail damage. The car needs a new hood, a new roof, a new liftgate, and work on the fenders and doors, too.

Anyway, it was a great run overall. I like the early morning hours for my workouts in general because after a good workout – be it bootcamp (Kosama) or running I am totally energized for the rest of the day. [Read more...]
