"At the old ball game!"
Two good pieces of mail in one day! Huzzah! I got a book that I supported through kickstarter and my new camera strap all the way from Hong Kong.
Fair! We love the fair! Woo! Fair!

The state fair! I love the fair. I get to run the crane camera for three newscasts in the afternoon. It's the only time of year that that crane gets any use and I love playing with it. My favorite part is not when my shots are on TV, but when I'm waiting. I'll take the camera and swing it close to a fairgoer and then get closer and closer and closer. Some people love it, most people are awkwardly tolerating it, some people uncomfortably tolerate it. No one has gotten upset (so far), but that is to be expected in Minnesota because it's Minnesota and Minnesotans don't express their true feelings.

A handmade wind chime acquired at the Mora Farmer's Market on the way to camp at Savanna Portage State Park. A fabulous purchase that will hang somewhere in my house and make me happy.
Warm days and cool nights and less bugs. August is great. Fall is my favorite and it's just around the corner.
*side note: I have worn the same sweatshirt in 4 of the past 5 photos. I just got it, and love it. I have washed it.

Felt fine all morning then slowly faded after lunch. I went from work to the couch in about 30 minutes. I hope I didn't catch the plague.
A day home sick from work sounds great in theory, but in practice is unpleasant. I spent the whole day on the couch drinking tea and eating bland foods. Lots of jello and toast and crackers. The highlight of the day was a dinner of chicken broth and plain pasta. Woo.

I'm excited to put pants on. Is that weird? It's been so hot and humid. I enjoyed wearing my jeans once again.

Shooting and skating. I love when this happens.

Sometimes my office is the ballpark. I like when that happens.
Going camping. Good news! I know how to set up my tent. I also tested the stove. I'd rather spend some time on a Saturday morning trying these things out than experimenting at the campsite. And I'm sure my hiking partners will agree.

Got sent to a runway fashion show. I'm totally glamorous at Glamorama sporting my station polo and a pony tail.

A red carpet! For me? No, not for me at all. Once again I'm in shorts and sandals and everyone else is dressed to the nines. What I lack in style, I hope I make up for in enthusiasm.
Mackenzie's birthday! Us 82ers got to stick together.

Sometimes, in the middle of a run, I hate running. Every time, after a run, I love running. When it's hard, I get better - I try and tell myself that when I feel awful and am cursing every step. Some days it's hard get out the door, but I've never regretted going for a run. Even on the hard days I'm glad I tried.
Remember the other day when I said I was training for the Duathlon? Well, I think I've decided to focus on improving my time for the TC 10 mile in October instead. I haven't spent enough time on the bike this summer to feel comfortable racing on it.
