As much as I might dread going out for a run during DC’s hot and humid summers, the views are certainly a nice change of pace.  You can’t help but feel more alive, because well, everything around you IS more alive!

One thought on “Then and Now

  1. Thanks for this post. There is a huge park where I live and summer time is great. Yes the heat (and the crowd) can be a deterrence but I feel much more alive. One thing I do is weight myself before my run. When I get back home I weight myself again. For every one pound lost I drink 16 ounces of water. This prevents me from dehydrating. Make sure to stay well hydrated during your summer runs.
