The Risk of Overheating While Running

It was a magnificently clear day for running in southern Virginia.

A nice and easy out and back.

Managed almost 8 miles before getting back to my car.

Honestly, conditions were pretty brutal. The humidity was off the charts. The risk of overheating while running in humidity is higher because the body is working harder to cool itself off. Thankfully I had 20 oz. of water with me and I did just fine.

Just for fun -- here's a pic I took of the temp in Iraq after it had cooled down at night. At least it's a dry heat over there.

Time for chores.
