Love the heat, hate the sweat

Did a 4 mile run this AM, and by 9 the weather was so hot and the sun was so intense I decided to run on some trails (Normally I am quite hesitant to do so because of that whole girl running alone in the woods thing). Have to say though the shade really helped me finish the run. Post run I returned home and finished off cleaning my dishes giving me a beautiful wonderfully clean sink!

Decided to cool off and rehydrate with some tasty Van tap, but made it extra special by popping in some frozen raspberries as ice cubes.

I have to be honest, I spend the rest of the day beet red – my body does not do well with heat and humidity and sweating (don’t know why I love philly summers so much but I still do). Might try and go for a swim this weekend, but we’ll see if there’s time for that.
