102 F

 I went to the park in the middle of the afternoon today and ran 4 miles on the trails.  According to my truck thermometer, the temperature was 102 F when I finished.  I expected to see some snakes, but I suppose they are too smart to be out in really hot weather.

Polish Pickle 5K

 For the 26th consecutive year that it has been held (not held in 2020), I ran the Polish Pickle 5K in Bremond this morning.  Lot of family and friends there.  Always a good time.  I finished in 45:13 and was 2nd of 5 in the 80 and over age group.

Another "ist"

I have seen a bunch of "ists" in the last couple years, but recently a neurologist, regarding getting dizzy at times while running.  During my first appointment, he told me to stopping running and walk.  My second appointment was yesterday and he told me just to run slower. Obviously, he has not seen me run.  In the meantime, he hooked up wires to my head and ran some tests.  Several weeks ago, another "ist" had an MRI done on my head, thinking that it might be a blood supply problem.  The results came back normal.  My next appointment is in late July and I hope to find out then what is causing the dizziness.  This afternoon, I went to the park when it was 97 degrees and ran 3.1 miles on the roads.

The heat continues

 As you know, it is hot in Texas for June and we have not had a drop  of rain for weeks.  The forecast is for 104-degree temperatures next week.  In any case, I made it out to the park early this afternoon and ran 3.3 miles on the roads.

Darn heel inflammation again

 When I got out of bed this morning, I realized that the inflammation in my right heel (old bone spur) had returned.  So, I went to the park and ran 3.4 miles on the roads.  Then, I went home and iced it.  If it goes as before, it will eventually go away.  It hurts when I start a run, but sorta gets numb for the  rest of the run.

Millican Summer Series - Race 2

 I drove over to Millican this evening to run the Millican Summer Series 5K (actually 3.3 miles) Trail Run.  The results have not been posted, but I finished in about 59:30, just a few seconds slower than Race 1 two weeks ago.  I think I was the only one in the 81 and over age group.
