I told you it was hot and sticky?

Oh my. I went running today after work. I thought I would die. Breathing is tough in this sort of humidity. I wonder how others get through it.

Not only am I as red as a ripe italian tomato, I also noticed I need a new sports bra (again — damnit why haven’t I arranged this since the Rotterdam Ladies Run when I noticed it the first time?)

You see I am not always looking perfect on photos!

    Damn girl! Why didn’t you run towards that big ass fountain in the background? ;)

      haha I didn’t even think about that!

    Oh Renee, you look fabulous! Geez,you’re OUT there, running, which is a hell of a lot more than the majority!! I can’t handle the heat/humidity either, so i run at 6-7h, every morning…even on those super-hot days it’s tolerable…and i moved from baseball caps to thin runner’s hairbands my friend sent me from the states…WOW! What a difference in cooling the head off and still look stylish! (especially with my icky post-chemo hair) ….

    1. Renée says:

      ah thanks Suz! I would love to run in the morning, but alas I am doing food prep from about 5-5:30 and then it’s get ready for work time! I already leave the house at 6:30 … *yawn*

      I keep meaning to get some bondi bands or something like that for my hair, it would sure help to cool down! what kind do you have?

      1. Suz says:

        Actually my friend sent me three different kinds, two of each! All different colours…all fab. For the first time i’m not embarassed to go outside without a cap on…losing my hair was devistating, these have been a godsend!

        1. Renée says:

          that’s so nice of your friend Suz. I can imagine it was hard to lose your hair! all for the greater good, eh? and look where you are today!

    I would have died too! Great job. And welcome to the red face club, we are a group of many and proudly showing our red faces ;p

    I have an almost carbon copy of your last image from last Sunday’s run (also aka’D as “I-am-too-stubborn-&-insane-run-BUT-thank-goodness-I-have-a-supporting-husband-to-support&pick-me-up!”), and OMG how I love you for sharing this moment!
