–It was insane humidity for this morning’s run. I am pretty sure it was 1,000 percent humidity at 5 a.m. Yes I said 1,000. Runs like that definitely make you stronger. Thankfully a little bit of breeze helped. But it reminded me almost of an early summer Texas run.
–Speaking of Texas humidity I definitely have a love/hate relationship with summer training. I will still do it…and mostly enjoy it because of Run My Hood and other fun social runner friend activities. but I would prefer cooler temps any day.
Runners in Texas basically get naked when we run in the summer.
–I wore my hydration backpack this morning and it’s funny because my road runner friends ALWAYS comment when they see me wearing my backpack. Like it’s some big monster of a thing on my back. Even when I wear the kiddie one. “What on earth/WHY ARE YOU WEARING THE BACKPACK today? It’s quite funny.
–Then when I wear it around my trail run buds…I fit right in. Trail runners love their vests and hydration packs. And trucker hats.
–Speaking of which I haven’t worn my trucker hats in a while. I traded them in for sparkly headbands.
–When people ask me if I am a road runner or a trail runner I like to say I’m BOTH. You know, a hybrid of sorts. Ha. I do love me some ultras on trails.
–The sauna at the gym was EXTRA HOT this morning. I usually stay in there forever (because I love dry heat) but I tapped out after several minutes. This was my sauna face.
–I will also be lugging this thing around the office all day. I am obsessed with my gallon jug. Also…Ozarka water is absolutely THE BEST. You know this if you are from Texas. Ozarka for the win.
Tell me some of your random thoughts today!

🙂 I lugged a gallon bottle before and everyone was commenting how crazy I was…thankfully it is still chilly here in DC, breezing 45-50. I just got myself a hydration vest but haven’t used it yet.
I have a feeling you will love the vest! Perfect for ultras and great to train with as well!! Let me know how you like it when you try it!
Yes, 1000% ! It feels a little better after this morning’s rain passed through. I usually wear a Nathan vest but I got this nice Nathan waist pack that holds 20 ounces so I use it a lot on short runs.
Yes, a bit better! Pretty warm and humid in my neck of the woods but better!! Could be excellent pool day if I wasn’t at work lol!
Well you have to admit, if there’s a group you’d want to see naked, it’s a bunch of lean, mean running machines. Also, I think the sparkly headband is nicer than the trucker hat 🙂
I love my vests and my trucker hats. And most of the trails have reopened out here so I need to get back out there 🙂
Yay! Get after it girl!
Sounds like you have quite the heat & hydration theme going on! Hoping you get at least a bit of a break 🌞
Oh girl this morning’s run was humid city! Also highs close to the 90s for part of this week!!
