It was still a stifling 102 degrees at 630pm this past Tuesday evening. We stopped at QT and picked up a cold, frothy beverage to enjoy on our hike at Lewis and Clark. We covered ourselves in bug spray and entered the trail to find it a pleasant 10 degrees cooler. We were still going to sweat a ridiculous amount, which was better than sitting on the couch.
I love that my other half and I share an active lifestyle. When we can't be together, we support each others solo journeys.

The following day, July 4th, we awakened early to beat the heat and get a ride in. We were on our cross bikes by 730am and in the woods a short while later. We are fortunate to live close to several trails, single track and gravel.

It turns out the two bars were closed for the day, which was probably good since the temps were climbing quickly and we needed to be home by 1pm. We reached our neighborhood by 1230pm with 35 miles under our belt. Not a bad day.
We finished up the holiday by grilling some veggies and enjoying a Raspberry Hefewiezen Ale by Schlafly.
What a fun and healthy holiday! What did you do?
