Paint it Black

The best part about summer running is the cool shower afterward. And tonight I needed it more than ever: Not just to wash away the sweat, but to also wash off the black blanket of bugs that are an additional trademark of summer running. I'm certain that the few that missed my eyeballs made it down my throat. Yum.

Sweet splits! I never get the bugs, and I thought I was a big target. Damn it, still not hardcore.

I just lost my appetite after reading this post and the comments.

I haven't noticed the bugs yet. The heat is tough to ignore.

Maybe some protective netting to run in....

I read a book called "Paint it Black" a while ago. It was good. By the way, I'm half way done with Straight & Dirty. Love it.

I don't know how you deal with the bugs. I would freak!
