Around mile 6 I started getting, um, sick. Which was sort of expected given the heat. It did make running home quite interesting. I think I've learned now the cause of the problem (heat; dehydration) and in the summer there's not much of a cure. Now I just need to work on symptom management.
Work was a sad day. It was the last day for our assistant director. (You may remember her from mile 19 of the marathon where she waited with her kid and a banana for me or from the Dreidel Dash when she also had a kid and banana for me.)
Now I'm at home, giving my air conditioner a brief respite before I crank it up again. (I think it's an "air mattress in the living room" kind of night.) Let me leave you with some new (and old) songs to enjoy:
- Pumped Up Kicks - Foster the People Don't read the lyrics; it's better that way.
- Circus Left Town - Eric Clapton The image of the circus clown holding up a knife...
- I Will But... - SheDaisy Just remembered the greatness of this song (as I was sucking wind on my morning run)
- Freaky Friday - Aqua The song isn't even that good; it just reminds me of my friend Chris (you suck!) and makes me smile!
