Tag Archives: Summer
Being away from Fernie really made me appreciate the little mountain town, especially now that the skies have cleared and the temperatures have gone down. Planning a trip in August was a good idea since August seems to be a time of campfire bans, smokey skies and suffocating heat.
Driving back felt good and now it’s September 1st, a new school year. I feel refreshed. Let’s do this!!
Wednesday, July 4th at 5:30. Station Square, The Arts Station in Fernie. Food trucks, beer tent, kids activities and live music. Let the summer begin!
Thank goodness for these cool mornings or I’m not sure I would go running at all. I guess we’ll find out if the temperatures start to increase beyond 21 degrees. I’m wondering what other people do in the middle of summer – do you run only in the morning or at night when it cools? Do you even get drained by the heat? As soon as that sunlight hits my skin I want to stop running. I go from full tank to RED LIGHT ALMOST EMPTY within seconds.
Let’s hope the mornings stay cool so I won’t have to invest in a cool misting fan head strap contraption.
