Cool Your Jets

It's been a couple days since my last post. It's also been a couple days since I last ran. I was a little disappointed with my run saturday morning, and new I needed the rest sunday. A run on monday was just not in the cards. I was busy with another engagement. As you can tell in the photo, my run the morning was hot... and sweaty. I went out afraid that I was going to have to cut it short as the clouds looked might dark, but halfway through, the sun started to peek through those heavy clouds, making it even warmer. I am not one that would sweat much on a 3 miler, but I do tend to get quite red. When I got back from this run, I couldn't figure out how to cool down.

Yesterday was a day spent with my 8-year-old God-daughter. I told her once I moved back home that I would take her to a movie. We spent most of the morning playing the Wii system, and then went to lunch at her favorite place, then to the movie. Shrek the III. It was pretty good. I was humored. There was some adult humor in there.

After that, I took her back home and went with her family and some other relatives to watch her first softball game! It was so much fun. I was lucky enought catch a couple other cousin's baseball games.

What a great eveing to be sitting at the diamonds... and did I mention how good the "taco in a bag" was?

Great pics.....as if we need a major excuse not to run this time of year, especially with relatives about.

The last photo tho....I've turned my computer monitor completely over twice and I fail to see anything in the clouds.....LOL...

Red indeed! If you have a lake or pool nearby, jump in it right after your run. That will cool you off!

I get totally bright red as well! I never did when I played high school sports so maybe it's part of getting older for us gals. Not that you are old compared to me. ;>)

I love the pics! Looks like fun!

Annette said...

Your red face looks like mine did yesterday. Summer runs can be HOT! Hopefully you're getting lots of fluids.

Looks like a fun day with your God-daughter. :)

Catching up on your blog.
Congrats on the job.
Awesome on the Nike race - I would love to join but I don't own the right equipment and don't know that I can purchase all of the items right now. But, I can't wait to hear how it goes for you.

Great job on the run. I get really red when I run too and my face actually burns...umm now that I think about it, should I be worried about that? :)

Great job on the run. I am glad that you had some fun over the weekend.

Deb said...

Family and good times....there's nothing better!

I sweat a lot as well. I usually cool down with some ice water and a cool shower.

JeffM said...

Good run and great pictures. I don't get red- I get dripping wet from sweat even on short runs.
I loved watching the kids play when they were young.
btw- Congratulations on the job in the home state.

Can't remember the last time we went to a movie... I do look forward to seeing Shrek on dvd when it comes out, though.

Jess said...

MPA is cracking me up -- she pulled a "jess" by all this drunk blogging! Although, clearly she can type better than I when intoxicated.

SkiRough said...

The picture of you and your goddaughter is adorable... such divas, you two! :)

Very cool day (well, from the picture not "cool" temperature-wise, but "cool" fun-wise)!
