Filmmaker Mike Olbinski condensed several weeks of storm chasing in the US Great Plains region into this 6 minute time-lapsed video. If you like weather or clouds, this has something for you. Some amazing views of shelf clouds (I felt like screaming as one came at me), lightning, classic thunderstorm shapes, and apparently 6 tornadoes (a couple are hard to spot in the clouds). Mammatus clouds look amazing in time lapse!

Happy Friday to you, and may this holiday weekend, (if in the US), be blessed by the cookout and barbecue gods.🍗🍔🌭🌽🍻🍻. Fingers crossed for no rain ☔️⛈. Even if it does rain, I'm still gonna fire up the grill. I love me some grilled corn on the cob. I have a special recipe. Whatever your plans if you are in the US or elsewhere, enjoy your weekend rain or shine 😘🍻🍻.

Awww! I’m a day late Friday anon! Sorry! Sounds like you have some fun plans! My husband and I are meeting up with @mackenzielass4ever tonight, and tomorrow is a glass blowing class! Then some total relaxation. We are having some amazing weather and I intend to enjoy the hell out of it! Probably BBQ also. Sounds like the thing to do. Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone I am trying to stay off SM for the most part and get some shit done and enjoy the weather. ❤️🌈☀️🍔🌭🍸🥃🍷☕️

I just returned from my vacation and it was amazing! I really, really needed some relaxing days at the sea. Weather was perfect, reunited with friends I haven’t seen for 20 years (so I was 8 when we lost contact) and all in all it was really amazing!

With a little planning, you can capture some amazing moments at national parks. After checking the weather, Eric Neitzel drove 3 hours to Tuolumne Meadows – the one place in California’s Yosemite National Park that’s flat enough for the perfect sunset. Braving the mosquitoes, he carefully laid down on the meadow grass to try and make sure the beautiful flowers of the meadow were shown as well as the the sunset and Pothole Dome. “For me, laying in the flowers of Tuolumne Meadows taking this picture made me feel like half John Muir and half Ansel Adams.” iPhone photo courtesy of Eric Neitzel.

Chicago W11D7 - LONG 16

Awwwww yesssss!! First 16 milers in the books and it was great!

The VP of my department at work is also running Chicago, so we have been chatting often about our training. He mentioned that theres a trail in a city about 30 miles away that was long and paved and really nice. After checking it out online, I was in! So I made my way over there this morning. It did not disappoint!

I started out not the greatest. I was just trying to find my groove and relax into the run. It took me about a quarter of the way through to really start to relax. I dunno what the deal was. But after about a third of the way through, the trail connects on some beautiful country roads! There were so many farms filled with pretty cows, horses (so many adorable baby horses!!), and goats! They all looked so happy today so being able to run past them really took my mind off things and pepped me up. I was feeling tired at the half way turn around, but pumped that I was half way done.

The second half of this run was muchhh better than the first! I just felt much better and the miles were ticking by fast. This trail was actually pretty hilly (for Indiana standards), and that took a bit out of me. On one of the last bigger hills, I was just about to reach the top and a woman on her bike passed me, and as she did she gave me a thumbs up. So nice of her and it really made me smile :)

The last few miles FLEW by and I was feeling amazing. I completely jammed out for the last mile and just felt so great! It was the perfect way to end that run. I felt so happy and accomplished :)

I made my way back to the park I had parked at and found and unsuspecting picnic table to prop my legs on. Felt soooo good to lay there in the sun and recover. The weather today was AMAZING! So amazing. I was even chilly during some parts!! The weather definitely helped me feel good today and I was so grateful for it!

Overall, a great 16 mile long run! Started out a little rough, but I found my groove eventually, and finished strong. Can’t ask for anything better :)

I hope you all had great weekends!!!! :)

“Burr Point Sunset”

It has been an overall unusually warm winter, so I’ve taken the chance to enjoy some nice weather in some remote parts of Utah.  It’s amazing how many epic canyon locations like this can still be enjoyed in solitude.

Just back from shoulder day, pretty pleased with my progress, despite having to take nearly a week out.

Please remember that a few days off isn’t as big a deal as your head tells you, you just have to get right back to the grind stone and crush it.

Also, popped into subway for a quick sandwich afterward, and the guys saw me in my workout gear so gave me free cheesecake cookies ❤❤❤.

Planning on doing some trail running tomorrow if they weather stays amazing. 😁

Like if you didn’t know what was going on it could totally look like they were just hanging out and drinking some hot coco to stay warm while being amazed by the weather. And you don’t know (unless you’ve read) so, that’s definitely what they’re doing, it’s a date, they’re walking in a park okay, on a date!
