One more silly post about the heat:

It has been too long since I last posted! And I really need to update you all on everything… unfortunately, it’s been the kind of weather that just makes me want to melt into a puddle on the floor. I live near Boston and it has been in the high 90s the last 3 days with about 80% humidity. If you’re from the south or maybe even the midwest, you’re probably thinking “…and?” And you’re right, you probably live this every day. It reminds me of a few winters ago, Florida had temps of like 30 degrees and I was thinking “so?” but that’s when I realized, they have high schools that involve court yards and crossing from one building to another… and can’t avoid the weather by just hanging out in one, nicely connected building. They don’t have all the winter gear that fills my house. 30° is cold to them! And 98° feels like death for me because we’re not equipped!
My blood is too thick, we don’t have built-in shady spots, parking garages are rare, etc. When I drove past the bus stop this morning, an older woman literally looked like she was about to faint! Ugh, it’s bad. It’s the kind of weather where we all vaguely smell of asparagus (even if we showered right before we left the house). But it’s supposed to be glorious again (in the mid-high 70s) next week so I’ll stop my belly aching!
Even though it’s been hot, I’ve been visiting the gym in my office building (it’s not a reason to delay walking to my hot car at the end of the night… no….). I’ve run 16.5 miles so far this week (and I even lifted weights for 45 minutes!). Which isn’t much for some, but it’s good for me lately.
What’s really motivating me to hit the gym? I remembered that I have a 10k in two weeks and I haven’t trained hard enough! Time to kick it up!
I promise, next week, to update you on the Haircut! (which I did do! Over 12 inches cut off!) And the Relay for Life that T and I did together last Friday. This weekend we’re going white water rafting!
