Imminent Catastrophe

    8.1 today, along the St Charles St. trolley tracks in New Orleans. Not as hot as last time, but still hot. The garden district is really nice, with huge old live oaks and big old houses. This area was relatively undamaged by Katrina. Nice because the tracks are on dirt, but bad because my shoes are now filthy!

      I wouldn't have run in that heat Perfesser. Hat's of to you! Why were you on the TM, Ennay? Too hot outside? ...
      ...Then I caught up with the Badwater webcast: 135 miles, 111°F, the winner ran under 24 hours! Those runners are in a league of their own.

This area was relatively undamaged by Katrina. Nice because the tracks are on dirt, but bad because my shoes are now filthy! I ran along that route when I did the NO 1/2 marathon back in Feb. I enjoyed the whole course, even got to run down Bourbon St (there were still partyer's out at 7 am) but I wouldn't want to do that run this time of year. I'm used to 70 degree temps here in the pacific northwest.

          there are TONS of Mardi Gras beads all along the way--in the dirt, in the trees, hanging on the telephone lines, everywhere! Clowning around MTA: format

          Imminent Catastrophe

            A nice 4.8 beach/trail run today. I had no idea where I was going and fortunately didn't get lost!

            ...---...

              managed 11 miles during this past week, not bad for a business trip, and 10.5 today. feet and right calve cramped the last 2 miles...should have hydrated better yesterday and last night. the temp is just brutal today (98) and the humidity this morning was like running in warm soupy air.
