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…
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…
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!
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!!!
It’s true, Mr. Sunrise and Mr. Me have become BFFs.
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!
“And it always goes on and on and on, And on and on and on and on, And on and on and on it goes.” -Jack Johnson, Lyrical Master (JK Mr. JJ, love you, mean it!)
How bout you? Sun out, guns out…amiright? See any streaking meteors (or people)? What does the sunrise whisper to you?
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!
