- This month was okay. I had expected to do more but the heat wave had me adjust some things. Mostly the walks with Bella suffered from that because it was too hot for her to walk on the street.
- This month Bella and I will start walking the long distance walking paths. I have 5 different routes that I want to do. This is a “project” that will take us years to complete because they are about 400K (250 miles) long and I want to walk approx 15K (9.3 miles) per walk.
More about this when I start the first route but be prepared to see many, many beautiful places of my country in the future. For me I will see places of my country that I have never seen either. I really look forward to this.
- I don’t have goals for August except to keep on running. I signed up for a 5K race on September 1 that I want to run without walking. I’m pretty well on schedule so it should be possible.

Book I’m reading
Karin Slaughter never disappoints me, every book she writes is good. This wasn’t any different. The plot was very well written. Usually I have an idea about who did it but not this time, I was surprised at it. Can’t wait till the next one but that will be probably next year.
George R.R. Martin
A Dance With Dragons, Dreams and Dust
First part of the last books (there are 2) that have been published. I had a hard time finishing book 4 but this one reads much easier because it has more of my favourite characters in it. I expect to finish it this month.
Low this month
Nothing really, not even the heat because I keep remembering how cold and long our winter has been and how much I complained about how long it lasted.
Highlight(s) of the month
BBQ with friends at our place.
Dinner with colleagues.
