It is hot and dry here in Montana as is most of the west apparently as Colorado and Utah have some bad sounding wildfires going on, as well as Arizona, Wyoming, North Carolina, and New Mexico. I learned a couple years ago about InciWeb which is a great tool for tracking wildfires. It shows perimeter maps, the latest news releases, contact info among other things.
I guess I mention it now since my husband just went to check out a fire call. He is on our local volunteer fire department. Which pretty much if you live here you are volunteered.
I am sitting here watching the smoke on the horizon and hate the helpless feeling of not knowing what is going on, but I hate to bother him on the phone very much either if he is on the fire line. It looks like a small fire so hopefully he will be home soon.
I got up early this morning and did a 6.5 mile run. I wanted to do seven but I was running a little late to get my Bountiful Basket. I had to pick it up at 7 am. Big score as there were cherries in it!
I feel like I have a chest cold coming on.
Really. This is what I feel like right now. (Side note. If I look really weird in this photo it is because I used PicMonkey and tried out the erase wrinkles, airbrushing, add mascara, blush, teeth whiten and eye brighten special effects, it hardly even looks like me anymore! Strangely it makes me head look like it was cut and pasted on also.)
14 days before my first marathon and I have felt for the last two days that I have something trying to settle into my chest and make itself at home. I am NOT happy about this development and am throwing everything I have at it. This is not the time to be getting a cold.
Not that I have ever had much say in when I get a cold. I got a horrible one when I was 38 weeks pregnant with my daughter. My whole family was sick and I coughed so much Avery decided she better get out and she was born ten days early.
As a side note, I came across this picture and had to share.

Are you totally grossed out now? I am.
