For those of you who are still running in the Sauna Driven Summer Heat I will warn you that this entry may upset you.
It finally seems that we have a break in the heat. What is truly amazing is how it has affected my running outdoors. Just last night I headed for a 12 mile run and the temps were perfect!! Our nights are in the low 60’s and the days are in the low 80’s. Instead of being beaten down by the heat I am empowered to push along and tick away each mile in the beautiful weather. Even the hills seemed to be somewhat easier and I seem to be enjoying this new challenge. With that said I only have 42 more miles to go this week. Yahhooooo!!
On a side note I will mention that once my husband arrived home from work he thought he would cycle to where I was running and surprise me. What should have been an easy thing to do added miles onto his ride. In the end I told him to stay put and ran to him. What this made me realize is that I really need to make sure that my route is known by at least one person. So often I run and turn where I choose to. Sure I have a general mapped out plan but there are lots of times I make last minute changes. Carrying a cell phone is great but if you can not get to it could be a problem. It was great having him join me for the last few miles. What a supporter!!
A big shout out to Suzanne. What a blast I had talking with you. Sharing the same love for this madness we are in is a blast! You don’t just hang with the Big Dogs… you are a BIG DOG.
