Running the past week or so has been uncomfortable for obvious reasons, but know what helps me break out of my comfort zone on these scorching hot days? Daydreaming, that’s what.
One of my favorite things to do on runs is visualize things that I have to look forward to in the coming months, here are some of my favorites!
Visiting one of my oldest friends in the Windy City!
Autumn, my favorite season by far is lurking around the corner somewhere and will be here before we know it!
Vacationing in Denver to help the broski complete his first 26.2!
Columbus Marathon! Duh! Though I’m not racing, I’ll be getting in a good solid half-mary by helping pace a certain someone.
Girls only trip to NYC! And maybe, just maybe a little 26.2 mile jaunt that ends in my favorite park.
College football games! Even amidst all the scandal, I can’t deny how much fun it is to go to OSU-themed parties and cookouts and just be engulfed by the Scarlet & Gray madness! O-H-I-O!
Of course some Harry Potter parties will be thrown into the mix.
So many exciting things to look forward to, don’t ya think? However, with all of these wonderful plans swirling in my mind, I do make time to check back into reality. Hot temps aren’t so bad when you get up to run before the sun rises, have plenty of popsicles in your freezer, access to iced lattes and beautiful sunsets on the regular.
How are you staying sane during this heat wave? Any big plans for later in the year?
