Ugh cotton t-shirts

Every time I forget and wear a cotton t-shirt during a hot-weather run, I get reminded very quickly why I really should avoid them. This morning I did a 10K workout on the paved trail and as the sun rose the humidity subsided to a mere 81%RH. My tshirt was literally dripping and by the end of the run it was flapping around me like a nasty wet shower curtain. How annoying! I need to dig out my Coolmax singlets NOW.



On a more somber note, our hearts go out to those in London affected by the terrorist attacks. It seems unimaginable, such tragedy coming so soon after the happy news of the plans for the 2012 Olympic Games.

We have humid, my clothes don't dry, you have rain forest humid-I think I would look like Violet in Charlie... if I lived in VA.

Yes, that is tragic-terrorist sure know how to create fear and trauma.

I agree, the humidity can be sume what of a pain. I thought that getting further up north away from the coast that I would be away from the horibly high heat index and humidity. But come to find out, living in a state that is surrounded by 2 of the Great Lakes, the humidity is not any better.

My heart and prayers are with all of those who were injured and effected by the bombings today.

Nancy, I have rewritten this comment twice because I have such a visceral and violent response to terrorists. I only hope that the loss of English lives today, wake up the politicians and media in this country to the problems they are causing with their MJ trials, pretty girl gone missing this week round the clock news and coddling of indifferent murders and terrorists.

I apoligize for my rant, this just really puts me in a mood.

Yeah, I had a tragic long run with my Virginia Beach Half Marathon tank the other day. Sweaty and chafe-eeee. Ouch!

I too have thoughts of really violent and almost immediate retaliation concerning the cowardly terroist attacks yesterday and yet I know that that doesn't always solve the problem, but it does tend to make the one who carrys out the revenge feel a little better. Remember George Orwells "Rough Men". I send healing thoughts and prayers to Tony Blair and the people of England!
