As we enter the eight millionth day of summer, I want to share the things that keep me going, in the 100 degree temperatures and 100 percent humidity.
I’m going to be honest: there are a lot of dogs walking in the summer, and I am here for all of them. If a pup wants to be pet, then it will be pet. Thursday morning, I got to love on no less than seven dogs, and even though our run was terrible, it was all worth it.
Loss of Fitness
The loss of fitness is enough of a motivator to keep me getting up and moving on those hot summer mornings. Even though I’m dragging, it will all pay off in the fall. Or so I have convinced myself.
Nothing relieves stress quite like running. With school back in session, new clients, and new volunteer positions, I need running more than ever, even if it means sweating my booty off.
I think my ankle will always be a little wonky, but regular runs and walks help keep everything from stiffening up. Even if it’s sweltering outside, I would rather deal with that torture than limping and stiffness.
Long Showers and Iced Coffee
A long shower and an iced coffee just hit different after a hot, humid run. I’m not saying I want a cold shower, but I love washing my hair and getting that caffeine rush!
What keep you moving when the summer is just endlessly hot and humid?
