Hot weather running

by - Tuesday, April 06, 2010

I think DC forgot that we're supposed to have spring in between summer and winter. It was in the high 70's/low 80's when I left for my run tonight.

By the time I got home I was a sweaty beast.

I forgot how hard running in the heat is at first when my body doesn't have time to acclimate to the warmth.

I still managed to crank out 4.48 miles in 43:38 averaging 9:40, but it wasn't easy and there was lots of walking involved.

I also had a new friend along for my run last night.

Check it out!

It's my Road ID.

It came in the mail over the weekend when I was home in PA and I'm so happy to have it. I won it in a giveaway a while back and finally got around to deciding which style I wanted and who to list as emergency contacts.

I used to carry my license with me on long runs when I wore my fuel belt, but on shorter runs I wouldn't carry any ID, which is not a good idea. Now that my Road ID is attached to my sneaker, I don't have to worry about it anymore. I'll have ID with me on short and long runs.

Do you carry ID with you on runs? How do you do it?
