Today was the first wicked day of summer. Well actually the last two days were scorching (90+ degrees) but both my runs were finished well before the mercury rose, so TODAY it is. We are close to record highs here. My a/c isn't turned on so it feels like Vietnam in my apartment while I sleep. I bake.
I took off on my run at 6pm when the air was still thick and the sun still hot. I felt very good aside from a minor foot pain (race?). I ran a steady 9 miles looping through Rock Creek Park. The heat and sun made it feel like a jungle...Vietnam, one might say. My legs aren't sore at all. We'll see how tomorrow goes.
I don't miss Washington in the summer.
