It's hard to believe, but it was just a few months ago that I was whining about running over snow covered sidewalks. If only I knew the heat and humidity that weather karma would throw at me this summer...
Flash forward three months and I've literally run out of layers to strip off while running. I've been down to running shorts and a racerback crop top for weeks now. And I have a limited amount of those, so I then am on a three day wash cycle, which really makes life enjoyable. Also, not to be completely disgusting (eh i'm halfway there), but I'm not a gal that glows when I work out. Nope. I'm dripping in sweat and wiping my face off while I'm waiting to cross at stoplights. Gone are the days (in the dead of winter) when I could just run and go to the gym afterwards. If I want to do that now I require a quick shower and an outfit change.
So you can only imagine my excitement when I walked out of work today in a cardigan and skirt and felt....chilly. I practically skipped home in excitement. The possibilities for running attire were endless. I have never been so happy to dig a long sleeved technical tee out of the bottom of my drawer.
I haven't had a run this good in a while...the humidity was low, I had plenty of fabric to wipe my face with and I even had a breeze going over the river as I ran across the bridges. Just when I thought life couldn't get any better, it had cooled off so much by the time I ran home that I was able to wear a hoodie to run errands. A. HOODIE. This is huge, people. The days of running tights, reflective zip ups and a hat and gloves are not far away. I couldn't be more excited.
