Back home and feeling very out of the loop.
Daughter & I had fun visiting relatives in Texas, but neither of us can imagine living in a hot/humid environment like that.
I am in awe of those of you who run in that weather. I ran 3.5 miles on Thursday. I did appreciate the oxygen rich air from a lower altitude and found myself moving faster, but the humidity about did me in.
Son is back with stories and photos from his week and will be sharing them with me later after dinner. But his short version is that it was "AWESOME"
I'm hoping Husband enjoyed a few days of peace and quiet without the family. He's making a roasted chicken dinner for us now. House smells yummy.
I've got lots of catching up to do (including laundry!).
Roasted chicken. Yum!ReplyDelete
Sounds as though everyone at the Slow & Steady house is feeling recharged. :)ReplyDelete
happy times at your place! Glad you have a great time in TX, and dinner sounds yummy! Enjoy :)ReplyDelete
Mmm. Sounds yummy!ReplyDelete
Glad your back safe and sound. I couldn't live in Texas either, love to visit but that's it.ReplyDelete
It's always nice to get away but catching up afterwards can be tough. Have a great Sunday. ;)ReplyDelete
Glad you had a good time, but yeah, humidity sucks.ReplyDelete
You get used the humidity, but it still REALLY sucks!ReplyDelete
welcome back lisa :)
Glad you had a great visit in TX! I dunno how they do it either - as much as I whine about the heat/humidity in NJ, it can't be as bad as over there.ReplyDelete
Yay! Glad you had a good trip!ReplyDelete
Yes, running in the humidity is horrible!! I hate running in the summer... (in Arkansas). It's SO not fun!ReplyDelete
I could barely stand the humidity in Panama City this weekend. Blech!!!ReplyDelete
I looked it up. The altitude where I was visiting is 696ft.ReplyDelete
The altitude at my house is 5023 and depending on where I run, it can be up to about 5800ft.
Apparently ~4500ft makes a lot of difference!
Welcome home! Running in heat & humidity takes some getting used to. I can't imagine running outdoors with snow or ice on the ground :-)ReplyDelete
Having lived in Houston for many years, I can totally attest as to how hard it is to run sometimes even in the early morning hours. And though there are many things I love about the city, I can't see myself moving back to any place as hot and humid as that.ReplyDelete
