It’s 86 degrees with 58% humidity and full sun at 1:30 in the afternoon. I spotted this dude:
If you can’t quite tell, he’s got on pants and not only a long sleeve shirt, but also a t-shirt over it. LMAO. I assume he’s training for an event in a hotter environment? Still strikes me as crazy, and I deliberately run at this time of day to heat train myself. But I wear as little clothing as is decent for a lady my age.
In other silliness, I found these at the grocery yesterday:
And on Friday this was my dinner:
On training runs, I’ve been listening to an audiobook called Mean Streak by Sandra Brown. The protagonist is a female doctor and marathoner. I’m seriously irritated by this alleged serious runner because the author has her do a 20 mile training run for a road race on a secluded mountain trail (if you don’t know, it makes more sense to train on a road for a road race, especially on a key long run) in which a snow storm is on its way and the doctor has a recently healed stress fracture. AND there is mention of altitude difficulties (this takes place in the Appalachians), yet the doc drove from Atlanta to the mountain to run the 20-miler the next morning, which wouldn’t allow for any altitude acclimation if any was necessary (the Appalachians are not quite considered high altitude from what I can tell).
I mean, I get that the author needed a setup for the book, but all of this bugs me so much that it distracts me from the story every time the doctor’s running is mentioned. It’s all I can do to not yell at the protagonist that she is too dumb to survive.😡 😜
