Changing it up and running at different times of the day this week. I used to do this A LOT back when I was training for my 100k2nd 100 miler to get used to running in the dark. I am forever a morning runner but when you run races that last 10+ hours AT A TIME- you’ve gotta be more flexible. HA. Since it has been cooler I’ve been loving changing things up and just running at whenever time I want. I actually had a splendid evening run the other day. Love them city lights.

Hey there and happy Friday! It is blazing hot down here in Texas but I managed to get out for some miles this morning. I’m kind of loving these super hot and humid runs lately though. Maybe my body is getting acclimated to it all? Feels like the ultimate detox.
