"I'm not alone in my craziness"

I went out for my long run today on another hot day this summer.  It was about 89 degrees F out, humid, and sunny.  I wore a good coat of sunscreen and carried my water and sports drink.

It was a recovery week, so my long run distance was decreased this week.  Since it was a recovery workout, I didn't feel bad taking walk breaks and running a nice easy pace.  I took full advantage of any shade I could find along my route and endulged in a couple sprinklers along the way.  Is there anything better than a sprinkler on a hot summer day?

As I ran down the street near my house, a slim, somewhat pale man with no shirt on approached running in the opposite direction.  As we passed, he said in a thick, possibly German accent, "I'm not alone in my craziness!"  That's right!  I'm crazy about running.  So crazy, that I'll do an 8 mile run on an 89 degree day.  Oh yah!  I was in good company out there today.

Short run - 3.5 miles
Trail running at Plaster Creek.  I think I picked up some poison ivy while mountain biking earlier this week...or it could have been while running.  The hubby and our friend Jair got it, too.  Washing my sheets as I write.  LOL!
