Sunday Morning

This has to be a quick post because Jerry and I have to skedaddle to get to the Dolphin game today (well, we're really more in a hurry to get to the tailgating part, but you know).

So, this morning's 10 miler with Wendy can probably best be described as tiring. I didn't sleep well last night (kept waking up), and while it was cooler temperature-wise this morning, the humidity was unbelievable, and it took its toll on us both: We looked as though we'd run in the rain we were so drenched in sweat afterwards; I mean, when your hair is completely saturated and you feel as though you just came out of the shower, and when you lean over to remove your shoes and the sweat just rolls off you -- yeah, you know you're sweaty then. Anyway, the combined factors (but I especially blame the humidity) made for a rather slow time of 1:51:18. Although, considering that accounts for two bathroom breaks and some walk breaks, it really isn't terrible.

All that sweating made for some chafing, which I didn't discover until the stings of the shower revealed them when I got home. Lovely.

Anyway, I'm off to the football game. There's a 50% chance of rain, so cross your fingers we remain dry. Overcast skies, I would like, rain I would not.

Sweet 10 miler!! Yea, humidity and dampness equals chaffing! Have a great time at the game!

A ten miler and tailgating, I would love that! It should make for an interesting Monday.

Still a good ten mile run effort. Humidity sucks! Have fun at the game! I hope the rain holds off for you.

Have fun today Jess! Ahhhh don't you just love it when it stings in the shower LOL

Annie is chaffed too from walking twice a day with Marshall. She was so pooped today she sat down and he had to drag her the rest of the way home!

Hope you had fun tailgating. As for the game-eh, it's football.

Obviously you and Jerry did your best to invoke the kindness of the football gods during your tailgating session as I cannot help but notice the Dolphinks beat Beafalo!

Marlene said...

Now that is sweaty!

Hope you're having fun at the game!

Good job on the ten miler, although being all drenched in sweat doesn't sound like great fun!!

Great job with the 10 miles? Is there a half or full in the near future?

teacherwoman said...

Wow... sneaking a 10-miler in there... on a Sunday morning... before tailgating. That's hardcore! :)

Heather said...

Nice run - way to tough it out through the humidity. Makes for guilt-free tailgating!

Crystal said...

I bet you felt good drinking those beers knowing the exercise was already out of the way. Hope you enjoyed the game.

MizFit said...

GOOD LORD you are SO not gonna encourage me to run when you write about chafing :)

Carly said...

Nice job running before the game. I hope you had a fun time.

I hope your poor pooch's tail heals soon. He looks so sad in the picture.

Laurel said...

Ugh, I REALLY don't miss that. Hopefully the humidity will drop for you soon.

But the more you sweat, the more room for beer!
