Like some other people who were born in Canada but who clearly don’t belong here…
Monday morning I went out and did 7 miles.
Yesterday we had our umpteenth day in a row of a Heat Warning in Ottawa (and the province)…basically, people can die because of the heat. Remember this pic?
Unless you’re a fake Canadian…which I have suspected that I am one for a while, but now have more proof.
Last night, with the humidex at 102F (39C) I decided I should go for a run because…a) it’s good training for Hotlanta and b) I kinda totally love extreme heat (except what it does to my fake straight hair!!).
So, I put very little clothing on and headed out for a run…did the same route as Monday…7 miles…slightly higher heart rate BUUUUUUT same pace. lol And you know what? I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVED it.
Let’s be clear though, I will still run a relatively slow half marathon this weekend in Atlanta BUT, I am going to LOVE EVERY MINUTE OF IT…and might never come back! lol
(Oh, and some Abby fill for those of you who only read this for pics of Abby – this is her, at 4 months, flaked out during a 6 hour car ride)
