This is me, running outside in April:
I'm thinking, "Oh, it's nice to be out here! The weather is great! I feel sorry for those people who run on treadmills. They're missing the wonderful opportunity to discover their cities on foot! Ahh, life is good!"
This is me, running outside in late May:
I'm thinking, "This air is so humid. It's thick, actually thick, to breathe it. This is gross. Disgusting. I'm miserable. And now the sun comes out from behind the clouds? I can't deal with hot sun right now! That just makes me mad!"
So yesterday I joined a local rec center, where I'll have access to a treadmill and indoor track. Yep, for much of the summer I'll be one of those poor runners, working out inside instead of exploring the city around me. And boring indoor running sounds positively divine after the 90% humidity in which I ran last week.
So hopefully, this morning, this will be me....
