Do you ever get a craving for certain terrain? A certain place? I have been craving the mountains like crazy. Maybe it’s the 100+ temps…the early but still ridiculously humid runs,the wave and lethargy of heat.
…so are the Tetons. (Do you know what that literally means??) I was watching a show on ultra marathoners a while ago and they were running in the mountains of Europe-maybe the Alps. The narrator said: “man goes to the mountains to find himself. Man sees his infinite smallness when compared to the infinite greatness.” For some reason it resonated with me, enough that I wrote it down to think about later. Running in the mountains certainly gives a sense of what you are made of. There is a crispness, a clear cut definition to mountains. Maybe I’m wanting mental clarity as much as the refreshing coolness.
I always make tzatziki with Greek yogurt, not sour cream. Garlic, tons of grated cucumber (fresh from a garden is best!), wild mint, a squeeze of lemon juice, salt and pepper, and chunks of feta. Good by itself, as a dip for veggies, on top of meats or salads.
