Good morning from the mountain. Chris captured this beautiful sunrise while I was still in dream land. One of his favorite times on the mountain are the hours from 5 am to 7 am. He loves waking up before everyone else and having his time to listen to NPR and make biscuits. I tell the crew, all of the time, how important it is to find a piece of the day to carve out and make your own. Fifteen minutes of solitude can help recharge your battery and refresh your mind. We love sharing this mountain with dayhikers and guests, so it is important to remind ourselves what this mountain is all about.
The days are getting warmer. The high yesterday was 69º with the low of 47º. The weather has been perfect for a hike around the top. Chris and I are back in training mode. We have signed up for a couple of races in August and November. It is good for us to have goals to look ahead to. It helps us stay motivated. So, if you pass us running back and forth, just ignore us. We like to call the flat section of trail our treadmill. Personally, I like the view from our treadmill much better then the one at the gym.
