The secret to a successful summer weekend, in my opinion, is sweat.
Which I got plenty of, thanks to the DC Road Runners’ for “locally famous” Saturday Long Run.I covered about 13 with the club and 3 more solo. Midway Gatorade made it bearable!After two weekends of not-so-great long runs, I felt lucky to be out with good health and good support. Even if it was 90 degrees and I felt like I was running through a soggy towel the entire way.I’m not even sure why I even showered after this run, because an hour or so later I was breaking a sweat again. From each firey spoonful of pho.Anthony and I love pho so much that we still thought that piping hot, spicy soup sounded delicious on a hot summer day.
All of my sinuses lit on fire. The only way to describe the feeling is that it’s similar to imagining you just had your entire face waxed. A burning sensation which blossoms deep down in every pore.So delicious, and so worth it.
Any by the time I recovered, I was back out there again. This morning’s much shorter run still reaped sweaty results.Cheers to a sweat-tastic summer for us all!
