Yo man, what it is blood? Things cray cray round here. Sorry I haven’t been on the blog world very often lately, but I’ve ben hella-busy. I’ve also been hella-focused on Chicago Marathon training…focused like
my telescope on my neighbor Karen when she’s working in the yard a meditating monk.
That’ said, I’m trying to keep my Instagram game strong in case you really want to follow along with my journey to Chi Town…
Anyway guys, it’s been a rough summer. Rough like cat tongues. This is my first time training for a Fall (Autumn) marathon. Which means it’s my first time trying to run gahundreds of miles in Texas heat. It’s been hot and humid, y’all.
clocks phones only get you up early enough to shield you from your neighbor Karen seeing you in her bushes the sun. It don’t much shield you from oppressive heat and humidity. But we plug along…errrday.
6 days a week we’re at it. Leaving puddles of sweat behind us. I’m sure some coyote is out there tracking my salty trail as we speak.
And boy howdy have we ever left some tracks all over Dallas. We’re running out of new places to run…literally.
But guess what kids????? We actually had a break in the hella-weather. First came rare rain…
Then came a
cold cool front!!!!!!!!!!! Oh miraculous DAY!!!
It was so effing uhmazeing! The humidity was non-existent. I felt like I had been let out of a swampy cage and released into a land of easy breathing and evaporating sweat!
But alas, it only alasted 4 days. 4 incredible, beautiful, wondrous days. But now the heat and humidity are back with an effing vengeance…like
Karen when she found my binoculars Rambo.
But we got no choice, Cap. Gotta keep truckin. Less than a month until the marathon. We can tough it out.
The heat couldn’t have come back at a worse time. In the middle of a 57 mile week. 22 big miles on Sunday alone. But we will tough it out, we will get stronger, and we will fly in Chicago.
How bout you? Ready for Fall much? Are you keeping at it? Why is Karen so up tight?
We’ve been having cool mornings and evenings and hot, sunny days, which is actually pretty awesome. Glad you got a few days of easier temps in there. Fall is coming!
I have not been keeping at it. Blah, this has to change soon. Hopefully fall is on the way soon so you don’t have to siphon all the water towers.
You WILL FLY in Chicago. No doubt. The weather broke this week. I sweat my paws have wings. #confidence
I’m proud of you Scott.
you are hilarious. i love that you’re trying to keep your IG game strong — killing it. 🙂 i know you’ll rock Chicago like whoa!
I miss summer! Least I have a long sleeved running top this year! 🙂 wish I was running all the miles but lately my tendons don’t want to play!
Great job on the training! Oh, I am welcoming the fall weather with open arms…except this week it’s super warm and humid…I thought we were done with this weather!
Just think how easy the marathon will be if the weather is amazing. The heat training will pay off!
I think you’re mad because you had to put your roller skates back in the car…
Good job! You’re logging some awesome miles! Fall is almost over here, well, the leaves are almost all gone already – it’s a bit early this year. It’s nice and cool already! I’ll send you some cool weather okay?!
The Karen sub-story…bahaha.
