Seeing Streakers, Running With Guns & A Miraculous Miracle!

What’s up beaches? Keepin it real? I hope so. I’ve been keepin it Klassy round here with a greyt week of Chicago Marathon training! Just have to get up early early to run before going to my job…

ggg

I sell tickets to the gun show, obviously.

This week started out hawt and steamy as ever. It’s been really bad you guys. So much so that I have to change shoes part way through the run – from sweat soaked to dry ones. Just look at the dew point we’ve been dealing with…

Yes, this was the weather at 5 a.m. But my run bud (in the smaller Pure Flows) brought homemade banana bread, so it made it worth it.

But then something miraculous happened. The weather changed. Out of nowhere. It’s been in the 70’s early, with much less oppressive dewity. Made for some much more pleasant runs!

The cooler temps made us giddy (up).

And what we even moar better this week? The pre-dawn runs allowed for some Shooting Stars!!!! The Perseids Meteor Shower has been going on and it’s been so cool on my runs to see random meteors *streaking through the sky!!! *Side note: meteors should really start wearing pants.

Of course, that ends with sunrise, but dude, you should see the sunrises we’ve been getting!!!

Hello sun.

Errrrrday!

It’s true, Mr. Sunrise and Mr. Me have become BFFs.

He likes to whisper sweet nothings. I wish he'd start whisper sweet somethings, otherwise it's kind of pointless.

Next up is this week’s long run, which is actually a step back week, so less miles, but more fun. Here’s hoping this miracle weather continues for it!

How bout you? Sun out, guns out…amiright? See any streaking meteors (or people)? What does the sunrise whisper to you?

  1. The sun hasn’t whispered. It’s yelled. GET YOUR TIRED ASS UP AND RUN NOW, LADY. Which I must admit is quite effective. You’re killing this round of training. Chicago or Bust, Baby!

  2. Good stuff as always. Glad your weather has been nice. It’s been pretty pleasant here as well!

    • Thank you!!!! The nice weather was short lived. Back to hot and humid, but this morning it was actually somewhat bearable. Hoping it lasts through the weekend! Hope your weather is still pleasant!!!

  3. Glad you survived that crazy dew point!! IDK how you do it man! On the other note… streakers!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YT-iFs0NE1s

    Great job running in all that heat! 90 degrees at 5am?! That sounds like a nightmare! So glad it finally cooled down a little 🙂

    • It’s been brutal. I can take the heat, but that humidity is just really making it tough. Hopefully it will be somewhat cooler for tomorrows 20 miler!!!
