Frosty? I wish

Well, it happened. During a run, I suddenly wished it was minus 10 and snowy.

Of course, deciding to put on dark top and shorts, the shades and going out for a run in a muggy 28 degrees at 1 p.m. wasn't a good idea as well.

In DC, there are other similarly crazy runners and there we were, among the crowds on the Mall. The hundreds of tourists were taking it easy, and a lot of those groups of students were eating ice cream, chomping on popsicles, drinking soda and generally moving slowly, the type of movement that is necessary when it's hot.

So when I came back after 42 minutes of running, about 7.5K, I was dying for a drink and was dripping with sweat. Oh well, this will be my running life in DC.

Frost Gatorade is yummy despite what it looks like in the glass.

I hear you about the heat. When I went out for a run last night it was hot and humid. I was just drained afterwards. I sure hope I get acclimated to it soon, or it will be a long summer...

We're just a bunch of complainers!!! lol

I was thinking the same, it's already high 20's here with smog advisory... grr that means back to morning running! I like my after work runs! That'll be hard!
