Sweatastic

I neglected to mention that we had an incredibly hot and humid day for the City Chase on Saturday, one of the warmest we've had all year. We were sweating buckets from the get-go, but fortunately we were too busy running like crazy all over the city to let it get to us.

The hot, humid and sunny conditions continued for Sunday's long run (20K) and yesterday's lunch run. I can tell that I've adjusted quite a bit, because it doesn't get to me nearly as much as it did just a few short weeks ago. That being said, bring on Seattle with its cool and damp weather! Speaking of which, I need to get packing! I can hardly believe that I'm flying out in just a couple days and running a marathon this Saturday!

Tall Mom has been tirelessly working on our itinerary and I can't wait to see this beautiful city and of course all of my bloggy buddies! 2 more sleeps!

Please, please, PLEASE bring some warm weather out west with you. I'm about 3 hrs north of Seattle and could desperately use some warmth.

Enjoy your trip and good luck for your marathon!

Ah, you're going to have so much fun! any goals for the race?? Or just for the heck of it? ;)

Either way, Seattle will definitely be a good break from this crazy heat! ENJOY and maybe bring some Cooler temps back east with you :)

Well you won't be too sweaty here. I think it's going to be mid-60s and partly cloudy with a chance of rain in the morning. That's what they say anyway. We shall see. Could be colder. Good running weather, though!

Amy said...

The Seattle rain will feel like sweat! I'm getting better at handling the heat also, what other choice do we have??????

Heather said...

I am starting to get more acclimated to the heat too . . .by the time we're fully used to it, it will be fall!

Safe travels to Seattle. :)

Pretty sure that the weather could make it into the 70's....so dont count on it being too cool.

I am happy that we decided on a plan today. I look forward to hanging with you, shopping, relaxing and RUNNING!

To tell you the truth I have thought more about the Bloggy Meet ups than the Marathon.. I better Mentally prepare.
