I never ran at all until 2010. I was overweight and just wanted to get healthy. Running was what helped me through that experience and it just became a habit after a couple of years running on and off.

PM: 5 miles, 4 with Anthony.  85 million degrees outside and humid.  It's not so much the temperature as much as it is humidity/dew point.  the real issue is my sun glasses fog up like I'm in a steam room and that's just annoying.

Forecast for the weekend: Florida record-breaking heat of 86 degrees, up to 80% humidity, and 7-10 mph wind, and you don't even want to know the dew point.

I'll be sweaty and miserable, but at least I know everyone else will be too.  One of my very fast friends decided to join for Gasparilla in the 15k Saturday and/or the half marathon on Sunday- however he is from up north.  I am worried he doesn't know what he is getting into with the weather down here.  The weather really does completely change your game plan, so I hope he heeds my warning.

Even in this soup, you're totally going to break 50 minutes! Good luck!
