Running in Texas is hot business but running in July is a whole new level. Unless you plan on dodging barflies in your all black running gear, waking earlier only helps so much..
Long run thoughts:
Accept you will look like you’ve ran through a sprinter and you smell like a locker room. It’s okay. Embrace it! Then shower!
Fartleks sure seem a whole lot like running in a neighborhood with strays and little dogs.
It’s ironic when your headphones keep telling you low battery the entire last leg of a run.
Wireless headphones are awesome! The breeze hits them and makes it sound like you’re real trucking it.
Time may pass faster if you play: “Can I take on that biker and steal his ride?”
If I eat a burger of any sort with or without a bun the night before a long run, there will be a hissy fit at miles 4-5 that include ditching the music.
Run with sunscreen, cause melanoma is real and scary.
Another fun game is could I run through that sprinkler without anyone noticing…or is it city?, is it well?, is it septic?
Run with water. It’s not that much extra weight. Much better than lightheaded.
No, I am NOT playing Pokemon Go. Neither is my husband Pulling a bike trailer and watching my other son ride solo. We are refilling water. Cause you will run out.
You look forward to the longer distances because ice bath!
