I want to start running again.
It’s a perfect storm of factors. I have a regular work schedule now that forces me to be up at a perfect running time. I sit a lot at work instead of moving around constantly and I NEED to get some of this excess energy out.
There’s just one problem: it’s so hot that just typing this entry is making me sweat.
The heat is that sticky, limp heat that makes you wilt from the inside out. It’s a heat that reminds me of home and not in a good way.
I spend most of my time curled up in a ball in front of the air conditioner. Running in this seems insane. Do people actually do that?
Still…I feel like this is one of those situations where I need to suck it up and stop whining. I need to get out there and just lace up those running shoes, run half a block and collapse in a dripping heap.
And then I can say, I tried. And isn’t that enough?
