I am still here!!

Run: 5 miles

I must admit, since the heat is on out here in the black hole I've been doing a poor job of keeping up my training. Though I've often gone without a workout for 3 or 4 days, this week I've decided (and don't have much option) that the heat won't hold me down. I even started to run at my most desired time of day -10a.m.- and it is HOT! 90 degrees hot. Strangely, I'm liking it. I think it's because I am about to go home to Oregon for a month where I know everyone is sporting their infamous Oregon tans and I will be golden.

This is where I share my favorite product of the moment
Sun Bum. It is not tested on animals, made in the U.S and recommended by Skin Cancer Foundation. Not greasy and smells like sweet coconut but not overbearing. I have yet to try their chap stick and I am a pretty big chap stick connoisseur...

Speaking of cancer, I became obsessed with juicing after I saw this fascinating documentary The Beautiful Truth. You can watch it free here. I discovered it on a couch day when I wasn't feeling too hot after visiting my dentist. It was an interesting time to discover it, you'll see why after you watch it.
Here's the summary from the website:

Raised on a wildlife reserve in Alaska, 15-year old Garrett was interested in the dietary habits of their animals.
After the tragic death of his mother, Garrett s father decided to home-school his son and assigned a book written by Dr. Max Gerson that proposes a direct link between diet and a cure for cancer.
Fascinated, Garrett embarks on a cross-country road trip to investigate The Gerson Therapy. He meets with scientists, doctors and cancer survivors who reveal how it is in the best interest of the multi-billion dollar medical industry to dismiss the notion of alternative and natural cures.
It has been said that more people live off cancer than die from it. The Beautiful Truth is a movie that can put a stop to this travesty. Here is a very practical guide to the intensive nutritional treatment of cancer and other life-threatening diseases that many would consider to have been impossible to obtain. But thanks to the work of Max Gerson, M.D., and his daughter, Charlotte Gerson, this knowledge is readily available.

Do you juice? How often? What are your favorite concoctions?
