Summer solstice is tomorrow

Tomorrow is the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. The sun will rise at 4:20 am and set at 11:42 pm but because the arc of the set sun is so close to the horizon, we are genuinely approaching 24 hours of daylight. What does this do to you? It gives you energy, it lets you sleep only 5-6 hours a night. But if you are training for a marathon, working hard, and have a full day job? This much sleep ain't gonna cut it...so we are exhausted. The cure? Climb Flattop Mountain and grill sausages - more to come...
