Hello from Houston! Sorry for my radio silence here and elsewhere in the blog world–we’ve been going non-stop since we arrived Saturday morning, and we finally have a quiet morning! So, I thought I’d update you all with some of our activities (and eats) so far.
But first, let’s chat a bit about running (since this is a running blog and all…) If you follow me on Instagram (and if you don’t-please do! I love the insta!) you may have seen I am having a TOUGH time hanging. I’m sure it’s a combination of the heat, humidity and getting over this stomach bug (which is STILL hanging around, ugh), but my milage and paces are not where I’d like them to be. Obviously, I’m not going to push myself too hard– I’m not used to the climate and I’m still recuperating for whatever knocked me down for two days. But man!
There are no words to accurately describe how the heat + humidity affects you. I’ve read other blogs that complain about humidity, and Jeff would talk about the humidity in Houston and I truly thought it was just over dramatics. Nope. Anyone who manages to maintain their training through the summer where there’s humidity, I give you serious props. You are badass. I am thanking my lucky stars that in a few days we’ll be back to our 70* weather and mountain air. You all are seriously tough and I am in awe.
Anyways! Onto the photo dump!
It’s been a really fun so far! Our next two days are a little more low key and then we head back home early Saturday! Why must vacations always come to an end?
Hope you all are having a fabulous week!
