It’s Hot Here

My Husband got a new job.  So we packed up and moved half way across the country and returned to our Native Homeland, Texas.  It’s good to be back.  Lots of family, lots of friends, but also lots of heat.  I hate to whine, but it’s hot!  And humid!  Seriously I guess I forgot just how hot it is in Texas.  I had grown used to snow in June.  I was used to early morning training in 30 degree temperatures.  Now I look at the thermometer in my car at 9 am and it reads 86.  I’m afraid to run in it.  Sunday my husband pushed me out the door at 1pm for a quick run.  He promised to meet me at my brother’s house for a dip in the pool at the end of my run.  At mile 2 I was hot, too hot.  I started walking and pumping my fists to make the tingly feeling go away.  Luckily I made it to my brother’s house and drank lots of gatorade and the saltiest chips I could find.  But now. . .I’m even more afraid to get out there and run in this Texas heat.  I know I should just get up early and go, but I hate going alone that early.  Ugh, I guess I need to suck it up, stop whining, and join a class at Run On!.  I also need a goal.  I’m toying with White Rock Lake’s Half Marathon in December, but part of me wants to push me to train for the whole sha-bang, the marathon.  I need Missy and Jenn to live here too, then I’d have running buddies.  Ok, enough whining.  The good news is that Rob signed us up for 24 Hours Fitness and I actually went to the building today and let them finger print me.  Tomorrow I have a date with a treadmill in an air-conditioned room.  I’ll let you know how it goes.
