The high today was 57 degrees, which was a far cry from the 80 degrees we had just a couple of days ago and since the high tomorrow is back to 75, we don't have the heat on. It was pretty chilly in the house this morning, but the fireplace helped warm things up. Peanut parked herself in front of it and stayed there all morning.

Faith wasn't bothered at all by the chilly air in the house, but I always say that she has Viking blood on both sides so it makes sense that she likes the cold.
|Is my Viking blood to blame for my huge hands too?|
My 4 mile stroller run outside was one of the best I've had in weeks because it was cooler outside. Apparently I've become like the dog and start acting like I'm running across Death Valley if the temperature nears 70 degrees. That's unfortunate because southern MD isn't known for its cool, dry summers.

Even my treadmill run during nap time was better than usual because it was so cold in the basement. Since Maryland gets so humid in the summer, we have dehumidifers running in the basement and they can make it feel warm down there, so it was a nice change from the last couple of weeks.
I figure that everyone is allowed to complain about one season, as long as they stick with it. Since I refrained from complaining about the cold, that means I have free rein to bitch about the heat. Whenever I read "How to Survive Hot Weather Running" I feel like the underlying message is "You're an idiot for trying to do this". Not that I don't run in the summer, I just recognize that it's an idiotic thing to do.
Since it gets chilly at night with no heat on, I had to bundle Faith up in her fleece pajamas that I almost put away for the season. Thank goodness for laziness.
|Ok Daddy, I'm going to run down field and then you throw this to me|
|Which way are the laces supposed to be when I throw this?|
