I’ve officially traded in my running capris for shorts because SUMMER IS HERE.

Last night my run was hot and humid as hell!

^^^^^^ Feels like 89*F/31*C with 89% humidity. No thanks. Can we rewind back to January weather?

I filmed a Day in the Life vlog yesterday but this might be my last one in this style for a while. My work life is pretty boring tbh! Yesterday was a bit different than my normal work day and I still wasn’t even sure if I should publish this video!

Also my skin was not looking so hot. I didn’t wear foundation for various reasons and that was a bad idea in the long run! Just a forewarning!

At least there is plenty of Cecil :).

I think I’m going to start filming my vlogs during the weekend. Usually my weekends are a tiny bit more exciting :). Also with the start of Chicago training coming up, that will add a new element!

Hopefully the humidity calms down just a little bit before my long runs get really long! Fingers crossed!

Is your weather nice during spring/early summer?

    Yesterday Matt and I went to Publix at like 8pm. When we came out of the store, it was full dark and we were smacked in the face by the humidity and heat. I hate when it’s still that hot after sundown!! It rained last night so hopefully the edge is off now, but I know it’ll be back. It is, after all, almost summer πŸ™ Running is about to get REALLY hard and our dedication is going to have to be major. I refuse to resort to treadmills!

      I HATE IT TOO! I always think about how hot the earth had to be during the daylight hours for it to remain so hot at night. (I’m not actually sure if that’s how it works lol).

      I refuse to run on the treadmills too! I did a lot of that this spring but I want to be outdoors all summer!

    Do you guys get a lot of mosquitoes in FL? That is the one thing I absolutely dread when summertime rolls around because I get bit like crazy. It gets really humid in PA but I just don’t think it gets as humid as FL because people don’t complain about it very much! I will have to watch your VLOG at lunch OHMYGOD I CAN’T WAIT!!!!

      We do get mosquitos and I get bit like crazy too! We luckily don’t really have them near the apartment or at the beach, but where Adam’s parents live there are so many of them. When we BBQ during the summer by their house I come home with 15-20 giant mosquito bites, no joke. I definitely feel your pain!

        Chrissy and Jelly do dental treats as well! I also brush Chrissy’s teeth. Jelly won’t have any of it. I think it is funny you get excited to watch Mindy at lunch and I get excited to watch YOU at lunch!!! Except I forgot about it yesterday and instead watched today during a break πŸ™‚ 1st gr is on a field trip. Oh darn, I hate missing a 1st grade class…. not.

    Right now it’s beautiful in Kansas… but I know what is coming. When I get back from Europe, I will likely be welcomed by temps over 100 and crazy humidity. I’m just trying to enjoy the cool temps while they last. Cecil asking for treats is pretty adorable, by the way!

      As I was watching the video footage back I thought “it looks like Cecil doesn’t like me. He’s actually all stand-offish while I try to pet him” but that’s just how he is when he knows he’s about to get treats. He doesn’t want to play about, he wants to get down to business and eat those treats!

      Ahhh yes I got spoiled with the PERFECT weather in Europe. Walking off the plane in Miami was like being smacked in the face with heat and humidity!

    Now that I think of it, no matter where you live, it seems like there are very few times in the year where people are actually happy with the weather. During the winter, it’s freezing and snowy and dark and everyone’s like “I miss summer, I hate the cold!” Then summer rolls around and everyone’s like “this heat is the worst! I want fall!” Spring isn’t much better because most days are unseasonably warm or, as we have been experiencing lately, unseasonably cold and dreary. The only time people seem to approve of the weather is for a few precious weeks in the fall, then the cycle begins anew.

    In short: when it comes to weather we are just never happy, lol! πŸ™‚

      You are so right! Except I don’t think I have ever said “I miss summer.” I love Florida but we just don’t get four seasons like the rest of you guys. I wish we did so I could complain about the cold weather too! πŸ˜€

    Things are heating up here is AZ also but thankfully no humidity. I want to start some vlogs but Heck I can’t ever come up with anything to talk about lol

      PLEASE START VLOGGING that would be great! You just talk to the camera like you’re with a friend!

    We are still bouncing around from 40’s to 70’s around here. It is supposed to get into the 70’s all next week, so I am looking forward to that! Unfortunately my son’s soccer league is going to be over. It’s been rainy for a lot of his games and practices, which stinks because they got cancelled. I guess the silver lining is that we didn’t have to sit around in the rain!
    I don’t get a chance to watch your Vlogs because I’m usually at work πŸ™

      Ahh 40s to 70s sounds amazing!!!!

      Oh no, that really stinks that his games got cancelled and now the season is over! They should add on a couple of games at the end like snow days for school!

    I watched your vlog–I totally enjoyed it and need to know what bag you have on the counter. From what I see of it, I love it and have been wanting a similar one to carry to work. I don’t know how you run in that humidity. I am ridiculous if I have to run in it (which is only when we go to Mexico cuz CO does not get humid….like ever). I will say that even though I completely bitch all winter long it’s only 2-3 months of snow that I have to deal with. The rest of the time, CO has amazing weather. I feel so lucky to live here and I get through winter by planning a getaway each February!

      Thank you Susan! I replied to your YouTube comment but it’s by Calvin Klein. I bought it last year though so I’m not sure if it’s still available. If it is I bet you could snag it at a great price! When I got it last year it was already on sale for I think $130? I bet it’s even half that now!

      I will spend all summer thinking about the beautiful weather Chicago WILL have in October. Because I refuse to even contemplate a hot race day!

    Oh man…summer is here, too, and I’m already just DONE with it, haha. Love the vlog! If I did one of these, my dog would totally be the star, haha.
