Here in Toronto we went from winter to summer over a couple of weeks. Just two weeks ago morning temperatures were below freezing and I was running in full winter gear. Fast forward a couple of weeks...now in short tights and a T shirt. So much for the four seasons here in Canada. Can we blame it on Global Warming?
As you may have guessed by now, I love summer and summer running. The hotter the better. I love to sweat and summer running means I sweat a lot. On a long run I can loose 3 kilos or water! Even though my winter running gear doesn't weigh a lot, it is restrictive so being able to run in short tights and a T Shirt is liberating. I feel like I've shed a few pounds.
Summer running in my neighbourhood early in the morning means I get to hear the birds singing. It helps on those mornings when I'm huffing and puffing during my hill repeat runs. And while I can't actually see the sun break the horizon, I look out for the moment on a run when it peeks over the trees.
Yes, I do love my summer running!
Until next time...
