I hate to complain about the weather, but damn, it’s hot here. My run this morning was hot, sticky, and muggy. I felt like I was running in the dead of summer, not in the middle of December. Where did all that nice, cool weather from November disappear to? Sunday I wore a strapless dress (a strapless dress! in December!) and felt fine, yesterday I wore a tank top and sweated in the leggings I paired it with when I took Maddie outside, and this morning I was tempted to shed my tech tee and run in just my sports bra a mile into my run.
Part of me wants this weather to stick around until January 5th (hey, I have an outdoor wedding ceremony to think of! 😉 ), but the other part is ready for some cooler weather. At the very least, some cooler weather to enjoy for my morning runs.
On the plus side, in the spirit of the off-season, I could take my run as leisurely as I saw fit and not worry about the heat holding me back. I ran a very casual 4 miles and barely checked my pace the entire run. That aspect of the run felt good. 🙂
After the run I re-fueled with a sweet and savory breakfast.
The sweet: a pear drizzled with some PB2
The savory: two scrambled eggs topped with green onion
I ate breakfast while catching up on last night’s episode of Gossip Girl. (SPOILER ALERT!!) I’m still a little disappointed with the final season of the show (bringing Bart Bass back from the dead? Ivy and Rufus? Dan partnering with Georgina? why? why?) and last night’s episode did nothing to win me over. However, the teaser for next week’s episode (the series finale!) did have my heart racing. Hopefully the final episode will allow the show to go out with a bang, just as it entered, and we’ll finally figure out who the heck Gossip Girl is.
In my head, Gossip Girl has always been some random observer from the outside who has nothing to do with the main characters, but I could be wrong. Who do you think Gossip Girl is? A main character? Someone we’ve been introduced to before? Or just some very random person off the street? I guess we’ll just have to tune in to find out!
