Running Public Service Announcement

I’m here to make a public service announcement.  Pay attention.  Listen closely.  Take notes.  I am here to help.  I have your best interest in mind.

IF ANYBODY WAS PLANNING ON RUNNING DURING THE HOURS OF 10:30 AM TO 6:30 PM – – DO NOT.  I REPEAT DO NOT.  IT IS TOO FREAKING HOT AND YOU WILL BE MISERABLE.  YOU WILL SAY WORDS IN YOUR HEAD YOU WOULD NEVER SAY OUT LOUD.  YOU WILL CURSE THE SUN.  YOU WILL SWEAT OUT ALL YOUR FLUID AND BE SO PARCHED WHEN YOU COME HOME YOU WILL BE UNABLE TO SPEAK.  YOUR CLOTHES WILL LOOK AS IF YOU JUST WENT SWIMMING AND YOUR FACE WILL BE AS RED AS A LOBSTER.  I REPEAT DO NOT RUN DURING THESE HOURS.  IF YOU DO RUN DURING THESE HOURS, KNOW THAT YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED AND I WILL CALL YOU STUPID.

Yes I just went running at 11:30 this morning.  3miles.  4 minutes of walking.  The whole time wondering what the heck I was thinking.  Seriously.  Stupidest thing I’ve done in a long time.  Thankfully I made a good mommy decision and wasn’t pushing the boys in the stroller.

  1. yuck….running at any time of day is gross. Running in the heat is horrible!

    Oh, I’ve been there too, Jamie. yikes! It really is a hard time to keep in shape – I absolutely must start my run before 9:00am, or I know I won’t be able to finish it! Of course, we have the humidity, too, to factor in quite a hefty heat index. Be sure to hydrate, too! Been praying for you as you pack up! (especially since I just read Aaron’s blog with packing rules – praying harder for you!) love.

    On work days, I’m out on my run by 6 am, and I really think it feels hotter, with the higher humidity! At least by 7-8, that really thick dewey air has burned off. Well, usually. ok. that’s all.

  5. I think all you running people have lost your marbles……every last one of them…..I would rather die.

  6. I just want you to know if you ever see me running you better run to, because it will mean that something bad has happened or something big is after me. But, you go on with your bad self, I admire you. I will continue to eat meat and not run lol. And, you will live long after I am gone.

  7. try running in the evening whjen the sun is going down. i do it and it i calm and relaxing… plus a slight breeze 🙂
