I have to question my sanity. What the hell was I thinking when I decided it was a good idea to train for a marathon during the summer months?
I guess I forgot how miserable it was. True...it was really important for me to run for MMRF- I've been planning on doing that for over a year, but I'm a wimp and running in 90+ degree weather just plain sucks. And the humidity? Yeah, I can run in the early morning or at dusk, but the air is so thick that I feel like I'm in a sauna. I can't even take a deep breath and um, breathing deep and running kind of go hand in hand. My first summer in Memphis, I swore I was developing asthma...and then fall came around and just like magic...my breathing returned to normal. I felt like Superwoman!
I've still got a run to get in tonight and honestly, I'm dreading it. It's almost 8:30PM and weather.com says that it's 85 degrees with 73% humidity...and the "feels like" temp is ninety-freakin-five. I gets no love.
Alright, alright...I'm done with my rant. Sorry to bring you down on a Friday evening, folks, but damn, its hot.
