Ahh, summer running in Houston. Anyway you slice 84% humidity, you come away with a sweat drenched shirt, short, socks and sometimes, if you run long enough, shoes. Today was one of those days, running my 7.5 miles Alden Bridge Loop, I was soaking wet by the second mile. By the third mile, I wasn't able to cool off and started to over heat. What's a Houston runner to do? Slow down and if that isn't enough, walk some. At least I got my run in before the sky opened up and decided to rain again. I have yet to turn on my lawn sprinklers this year. So I guess the Houston drought we experienced the last few years have finally come to an end.
Distance: 7.5 miles
Shoes: Kayano XII (134.2 miles)
