It's still hot, I'm still running slower, and I'm still having a hard time getting into the running zone, but it's getting better and I have a positive outlook! Week by week I'm adapting to the heat and trying to keep my eye on the prize (glorious fall runs).

I ran before work Friday, but woke up late and didn't have time for much. I wasn't feeling it and decided to go out for 10 minutes. I felt like I was going lightning fast, but it was an 8:44 pace. Definitely good, but I miss my speedy mile days during last winter's runstreak!

Other than running, work was busy, but we had a low-key week at home. We finished Stranger Things on Netflix (so good), watched the movie Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (also good, but not a comedy as advertised), and we've watched a few Olympic events. I'm prepping for a trip to Michigan next week for Oiselle Great Lakes Birdcamp. Alex is going with me (he'll be hiking while I'm at camp) and we're stopping in Grand Rapids and Traverse City. Camp is in Glen Arbor near the Sleeping Bear Dunes. I'm excited to run in the park and meet new people, but I'm intimidated by the running pedigree of the ladies attending! They're so fast!
Have you ever gone to camp? I went to band camp in high school...
Any recommendations for things to see/do in Glen Arbor, Grand Rapids, and Traverse City?
What Olympic events do you enjoy? I've enjoyed the cycling road races.
