Head for the trails!

Today when I woke up at 6am to run it was a steamy 80' with 115%humidity. HOLY CRAP it was hot!!! I ran about a mile to the middle school track, did a lousy mile of intervals on the track then headed off the black track for the black road. When I didn't think I could stand it anymore, I found a trail behind the local university. IT WAS DIVINE.....I swear it was ten degrees cooler in the woods and I don't know if maybe I am not sweet enough, but no bugs bothered me in there either. I love trails for the cushioning on my joints, but now with the temp. factor, I will be heading for the trails more often.

My summer fun has come to a screeching halt since son #1 has walking pnemonia. It is scary and I hate that he is so sick, but I am a little bummed out that our regular summer adventures are on hold until he recovers. From what I know it could be awhile for that to happen. Anyone know when I can expect him to feel better?

My #1 son has had a problem with Asthma since he was about 2. He gets dark circles under his eyes, dehydrated, then the next thing you know, pneumonia sets in. Happened once or twice a year until about 13, and now its slowed down even more.

The medicine should work wonders, and he'll be feeling good as new in 3 to 4 days. At least that's been my experience.

Hope he feels better. Excellent run on the trails!
