Decided over the weekend, the best way to get back into shape for another decent marathon is a running streak. This won't be the first time I've done the streak thing, even though they are pretty stupid. Damn, near ended it this morning and it's only 7 days along. Streaks have been around for quite some time. Even have some kind of club and running forums dedicated to running streaks. The only stipulation is a minimum of one mile a day. I decided on my last streak, my daily minimum would be four miles.

Only took me 4 shots to get this picture. Shows how much traffic is on this little road out in the country. Set up my camera in the middle of the road with the self timer and used the ground to hold the camera. Kinda like the way it shows me suspended in the air. Doesn't show how hot it was for that early in the morning.

Tour de France time again. Seems like each year I'm watching less and less. It's only a couple days in at this point. Great scenery and the easiest way to see the French countryside, without leaving your couch. If I had a treadmill, I could probably watch more of it without falling asleep on the couch. Never did get together with a group and ride on trainers and watch the stages, that would have been pretty cool.
