When something bad happens, you have three choices: let it define you, let it destroy you, or let it strengthen you.

The heart of the difference is not ability or even talent, but desire

The purpose of life is to discover and develop your gift. The meaning of life comes from sharing your gift with others. - David Viscott

Just live through next Wednesday...

We are real troopers out here. May be Virginia had its 45 seconds of fame by shaking, we broke 80+ years record of most days (over 70 and counting) over 100F in a summer. Yesterday was balmy 98F, but today we are back with another heat wave coming...To tell you the truth, the last two mornings felt really nice, almost chilly. I heard from locals, you know heat is about to break not by when the temperatures drop during a day, but by how nice the mornings become. I felt really nice yesterday and today...too bad I couldn't enjoy it on trails. I am doing well, thanks to all nice comments and support. It's going to be a fun night tomorrow when I play a doctor at the Shoe Trail Races! I hope everybody has a grand time this weekend. I promise to bring pictures and stories!

I have to say I'm mildly jealous--I love Oregon, but I miss the heat of DC! There's nothing like that feeling of first getting into your car on a day when it's over 100. Bikram keeps me sane, though. Good luck with your competition coming up!

We are dying in L.A. as well. It has been between 105 and 110 outside my Woodland Hills office the last couple of days (it is always 5-10 degrees cooler in Thousand Oaks). I miss Alaska so bad.

Your humidity is much worse though.
