It has been blazing hot here in Utah. We are talking above 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Last night I waited until 9 PM and I kid you not, I could barely breath. I’m sure if I want to escape running in the heat then I’m going to need to wake up at 5 AM – NOT happening. Yet oh so very tempting. How much do I really love to run? Enough to wake up at 5 AM? Enough to run in 100 degree heat? Yes. Probably.
GPS wasn’t feeling the heat either, because it took some time off during my first mile or so. Nonetheless, I managed to snap a pic of the night’s view. Pretty incredible I must say. In the distance there was a storm and so I just watched the lightning as I ran. Suffocating from heat, but enjoying the view for a couple miles.
Also, I just have to put out there that yesterday I pretty much ate large amounts of cookies and had zero motivation to run. I was at a friend’s book party and sat on her couch debating back and forth whether I was going or not. Yes. No. Yes. No. FINE YES! This is so common for me but I always thank myself the second I start running.
Who else has to force themselves some days? How do you find the motivation to keep going on the days you just want to veg out on the couch? Happy July 1st to you all! July is greatest month of them all, is it not?
