    Looks like I'll be running in 85 degree weather this evening. Sure hope there's at least a little breeze.

    Needs more cowbell!

      Sounds like our weather. It's breezy, but still in the high 80s. We're supposed to get t-storms tonite that will drop the temps 10 degrees or so for the rest of the week. I really hope we get an inch or more of rain, too. Everything is brown and droopy. k

      I shoot pretty things! ~

        This morning as I was taking advantage of my new work schedule by sleeping in, I suddenly thought of how if I didn't get out of bed and get out the door to run I'd be forcing a run in the high temps tonight, or on the treadmill again...so I got up and ran when it was still under 70! (my husband was home sick today so I was able to run outside while he was home with our youngest) I guess the twins would think you were insane if you packed them into one of those double running strollers at 6 or 7 a.m. so you could get a nice long run in!

          Nice that you we're able to get a run in this morning! If I got them up at 6 my dd would probably KILL me and 7 is out of the question since that is when dh gets on the road. Fortunatly dh told me he's working from home tomorrow and probably Wed which means I can run as soon as I get up! Modified to add the thought of pushing over 100lbs up the hills where I run isn't very motivating

            I thought of that too. I'm sure that WOULD NOT be fun!!

              Well it was hot as Hades and I managed to survive. Not only did I manage to survive but I ended up doing a tempo run then a mile cooldown. I think this may be a potential problem pattern for the times I run later in the day.

                Very cool! Did you wear your camelback? Did you get chills at all? I thought of you when I looked out my office window and saw a person off in the distance running - it was about 90 degrees then!!

                  Nope no camel back and no chills. I made sure to drink TONS of water today. modified to add it was almost 90 today.
