Is everyone enjoying the long holiday weekend? We have managed to successfully fill every minute with busy-ness of some sort. We have hit the river on the hottest day of the year so far, had a family and friends BBQ, watched our town’s fireworks, and I managed to fit in a 10-mile training run yesterday morning! Whew!
I am a bad, bad blogger and took minimal pictures over the weekend. I know, I know. First my camera battery was dead, then after I finally got it charged, I didn’t bother grabbing it to take a few shots. I always regret this decision. You’d think I would learn my lesson, but alas, no.
So I’ll share yesterday’s long run with you,
It was miserably hot and humid yesterday morning…upper 70s at 630am. Blech. So I took it easy-ish to ensure that I could actually finish my run. I was still spent, of course. The heat and humidity just drains all the life out of me. I am not a fan of running in heat. Bring me a cool fall morning and I’ll run for hours, but notsomuch in the summer!
I had a great new playlist to listen to during my run, though. And it honestly kept me going when I just wanted to stop. It’s amazing what new and different music can do for your motivation! Here’s a partial list…I couldn’t fit the rest on the screen but rest assured that it was full of more new country greatness!
Afterwards, my post-run tweet said it all:
Have a great 4th of July today, friends! Remember the real reason we celebrate
