Wow, can you say HOT, but I'm not going to complain because my friend d10 down in North Carolina is living in serious heat, and we just had a brief (I hope) heatwave. My daughter woke again with fever, and this time the doctors visit revealed a full blown ear infection, so, she's on antibiotics, and feeling much better, but because of the doctors visit and getting to the drugstore for the meds, I didn't get out the door until 12:25, and the thermometer outside was reading 94 in the sun and 88 in the shade. I planned to run 8, but managed to get 6 good miles in, and I was even thrilled with the pace. I wore my fuel belt, with the 4 bottles filled with water (but frozen), and off I went. For some reason, AGAIN, my nike+ crapped out and didn't record the run:( boo hoo:( But I still got to listen to my podcasts and really ended up enjoying this run. By the end of the run I was completely drenched in sweat and my frozen bottles were liquid and empty:) I drank them all. I never do that. But I'm guessing my body needed it because after every drink I just got this amazing burst of energy and just kept on plugging along. Running in the sun was not that much fun, but most of the route was in the shade:)!!
