Running without my shirt
Tonight I went for it...the temps are heating up and I am seeing female runners all over in just their jog bras and shorts. Well tonight I joined them...sort of.
I went out in my jog bra and running skirt. It was a bold move. I have not run without a shirt for about 12 years. I asked my husband and his only concern was weighing the sun exposure and the moisture wicking properties of a shirt.
It was 5 pm when I headed out so the sun was not an issue and the moisture would just run right off of me! The breeze off the water felt fantastic while I was near the water. Other than that it was pretty much just plain hot out there. If it did not get any warmer this summer I would just fine.
I ran for 9 miles this evening and walked the final 1.3. It is a beautiful evening out there, a little hot for running, but perfect for walking or dining outside along the waterfront.
Right now I feel like I am between races. My last half was a week ago and my next half is Jamestown in mid-July (race #2 in the UnitedHealthcare Triple Crown). At least the race starts at 6:30. I know it will be an early morning, but maybe we can beat the sun above the treeline!
