Well, summer is here all right....we hit 94 degrees in Seattle! To be fair, it was 91 degrees when I went on my run. I was set on getting at least 5 miles in, and I really didnt think it would be that big of a deal while at work. Yeah, I was wrong.
That was one of the most difficult runs ever! I made it my 4 miles at a 10:00 pace, but it wasn't pretty with the hills. For kicks, I decided to run another mile, thinking I could run back through a few sprinklers on my way. Within FEET of reaching the sprinklers someone turned them off! So much for my cool down.....it must have been there to tempt me :)
Anyways, when I got back from my run (dazed and confused, haha) a woman was walking through the front doors. She looked at me and said:
"You ran? In this heat......on purpose?"
I smiled and said yes, and she looked at me like I was crazy. Getting a few miles in isnt that crazy, is it??
