Early Morning Heat Box

Eight mile run is DONE for the day.  And good thing since it’s only getting hotter by the minute.  At 6am it was still really hot though–85 degrees with 91 percent humidity.  The temperature is expected to rise to 103 and with the humidity that should feel like 120. Ouch!  Talk about heat exhaustion and sunburn.  Even last night when I walked outside my front door at 9:30 pm I was washed over by some heavy layers of humidity.  Thank goodness I’ll be at the beach tomorrow although, who knows, the ocean may not even cool me off!

Regardless of the heat though I still am powering through my routines and eight miles was not so bad which means training is paying off and I’m getting used to the longer distances.  Unfortunately (or fortunately for me today) I saw a dead snake on the side of the trail.  I jumped so far and almost knocked over my training buddy.  It was a big one too so I better pay close attention when I’m running along the side of a trail–you never know what’s lurking. The heat must not have been good for the poor slithery fellow.

Happy Friday!

About mileoneandcounting

I'm a young professional living in the Washington, DC area. Since moving here in 2007 I have honed a passion for running and fitness. Growing up I played soccer and softball (and tested track & field for one year). After college I ran a few 5K races, but running was really only a means to staying in shape for me. Never in my wildest imagination had I thought I'd ever run a marathon, let alone three. Nor did I think I'd get the running bug after doing so, but I'll admit I'm hooked! Over the years my blog has grown into so much more than a running blog though. Sometimes I have deep thoughts. Other times I'm simply sharing a training story or a review of a product. Here's the place where you'll learn about me through my many adventures--even I enjoy going back to re-read some posts from time to time. I've also been able to hone my love for health and wellness through my business called IDLife which stands for Individually Designed Life. I'd love to help inspire you to live your best life yet so please don't hesitate to reach out to me and may my words resonate with you. See you on the trails...
