it's been a long time since i ran in any kind of heat. 74 degrees isn't overly hot, but when you're used to running with temps in the 50s and 60s, it feels icky. i might add, it's amazing how much sweat i produce!
i ran the first two miles with my wife who was out for the first time since coming down with strep last week. we ran at a nice easy pace and she kept going the whole time.
when her two miles were done, i sped up a bit and ran a second two on my own. i was fine for the first 3/4 of a mile and then my tummy decided to rebel. it was touch and go for awhile, but i made it home without incident.
