It's crazy how the air quality can effect your runs. Two summers ago, we had to deal with Red Tide. It was so bad, that I could not even roll the windows in my car with out coughing up a lung. This morning as I was driving to Watercolor to meet everyone I noticed how 'foggy' it was. Once I got out of the car, realized that it was not fog, but smoke from the prescribed burns! I guess the wind was blowing the perfect direction to push it all down here. Needless to say not only was the run tough due to the air quality, but we all smelled like a bonfire!
After reading Steve in a speedo?! GROSS! 's blog I had to share this motivation poster:
Growing up we used to have lobster races/fights all the time before they hit the boiling pot of water. Yum. I could so go for some lobster right now. After Gina's 'Maine Event' in July where I ate lobster all day, every day - my body is finally craving it again! Check out Steve's blog - it's awesome. Plus, he's running a 1/2 marathon tomorrow somewhere where it's really freaking cold - like -5. So wish him luck!
Also - to add to the randomness of this friday, I would like to share an oldie, but goodie youtube video that was e-mailed to me this morning. It is just too funny.
