Dog Day Run

Geez, is it summer already. I went out this morning for a quarter marathon run along the greenbelt trails and was soaked in sweat after a mile. I shed the shirt, leaving it behind a bench along the trail, and continued on. In all, I ran 6.55 miles in 8:47 pace, maybe my worst in over a year.

All in all it's okay, though. I hate the heat and will avoid it as best I can. But it's amazing how much energy goes into heat management and not the running muscles in these conditions.

The body is an incredible machine. Gotta take care of it.
