First, my "solemate":
Yep, those are hubby's feet. And for the record, he came up with that. Also for the record, it's lame stuff along those lines that makes me love him. Moving right along.....
This morning I was determined to get a long run in, despite the heat. Genius that I am, I only started at 8:30. It took about 3.5 minutes before I was drenched, head to toe. I thought I had a pretty good plan though--hubby dropped me off on a 2-mile running loop, and would come back to pick me up 2 hours later. I had no choice but to keep going! I ran 9.25 miles at a 9:14 pace, and then 2 miles of walking. Pretty happy to have that done, even with temps in the 80s and 95% humidity!
I stopped halfway through to get a cold drink in the grocery store. I realized that the money that was in my shorts pocket was SOAKED through. I was too embarrassed to hand it to the cashier, it was that bad. Thank goodness for self check-out!
Any long runs today? How are you doing in this crazy heat?
Ugh. Not what I wanted but I'm just happy it happened at all. Too hot!
Do you ever stop in a grocery store/gas station/public place on a run? Or head somewhere afterwards before changing?
I really don't mind being gross, sweaty, etc for vanity reasons--but I hate when I'm so wet that I leave drips on the floor behind me! I usually don't run anywhere near stores. Or people, for that matter.
