However, ask me to log a few miles in a sports bra sans shirt and I'll cower in the corner. What gives? I'm not quite sure. Everything just seems to look a lot better when it's not all in motion, ya know? Last summer I went shirtless for one run when it was 12003459834 degrees with 1708345% humidity. I knew I couldn't handle one more run in that crap drowning in my clothes and the air. I swear some girls gave me an evil look, and I never went without again.
This year I've been talking about it for at least a month. I've done a decent job sticking to my core work, partially for this reason (christ...vain much? don't do core work because it might make you...uh.... faster... idiot).
Well last Monday it was a nice 80 degrees with 80% humidity (seems to be the norm 80-80 not sure why) and after dealing with a death march of a long run Sunday I said screw it. I threw on my running hat for incognito sake and did my 5 miles. And it didn't kill me. A lot of walkers wouldn't even make eye contact to smile/wave/say hi to me, probably because they were uncomfortable, but runners didn't bat an eyelash. AND I WAS SO FREAKIN' COOL. zomg it was amazing. When I got done running my stomach was cool to the touch, because my internal cooling system was able to do its job when it didn't have fabric in the way. Your body sweats to cool you off.... duh.
So for the rest of the summer, I'm not going to give two poos about a few snobby judgmental stares because I'm 88% less of a sweatmonster. WIN!
But in the meantime.........
Please send me Susan's abs by my next long run.
