this Sunday was…

this Sunday was a “welcome to summer” run complete with heat and humidity…and sweat. Good run though I’ve become very much aware of water fountain placement. I think if I were to go back to college I’d like to major in water fountain placement. Funny the best water fountain out there is by the dog run. Anyway a sparse running crowd out there today and the few runners seemed to be friendlier than usual I suggested the heat made people friendly though I was roundly comdenmed for such a silly statement. There was talk of Mussolini; castration; cruises; priests in Ireland in the 1800’s; and with 2 doctor’s on board if someone had a heart attack which one would take the lead on mouth to mouth. All in all a typical menu of topics for a run. Also where the hell was Bryan? We know Michelle was sleeping in after her 1/2 marathon yesterday. Lastly, in honor of Frank and his Dad’s love of Rheingold beer…”My beer is Rheingold the dry beer. Please try Rheingold whenever you buy beer. It’s not bitter, not sweet. It’s the extra dry treat. Won’t you try extra dry Rheingold beer.”

  1. That first run in summer heat and humidity can be brutal. Yesterday’s certainly was. Nice description, Tony. And you found the Rheingold slogan!

  2. Wished i could have been there still recovering from a lousey performance at bob potts marathon last sunday! Muscle cramp at mile 6 and struggled for 26.2 and finished miserably! I think i would have to pass on
    Rheingold and go for a guinness! Hope to be out there next weekend

    This weekend was rediculous. Hottest half marathon I’ve ever run, and it is no coincidence that it was my worst time ever for a Half. Good thing I had that nice PR in April. Post race beer was delicious. I took the day off Sunday, but regretted it. I was so stir crazy with no training the whole day! Since i ran the Half so slowly, i really didn’t need the rest day.

    Glad everyone made it back safely after the hot run. Also, cool insight as to what the guys in our group talk about on the run!
