The first signs of a DC summer are here. High temps and high humidity fill the late evening air, and I for one am glad to see it! After such a long winter full of cold, icy runs, nothing feels better than returning to the house soaked with sweat. It wasn’t until this week that I really had my first great hot run of the year. After a weekend of no running and too much boozing, a swift 5 miles with a lot of leaking (read: sweat), couldn’t have felt better. It is one thing to get home and be tired from a run. It is another thing to get home, be tired, and FEEL wet. No question you just had a work out.
I’m not looking forward to 90+ degree training this summer, but I’ll soak up this 75 degree, 70% humidity any day.
So what do you think?
I’ll be post all of my routes on my MapMyRun profile.
