Have I mentioned I LOVE summer?
Bring on the heat!!!
Today is our first day of above 30 degrees Celsius which is 85 °F , with a humidex of 91, so it does take a moment to adjust when you come out of an air conditioned office. My car has A/C but I keep forgetting about it because I never use it, even my house doesn't have it. So today I put on my Air and it took the whole driving time to cool off the car. It was just about right when I backed into my driveway. Oh well.
This week will be a little tough with running, but luckily my "sweat" system works really well and I have learned empathy and even sympathy for those who have trouble in the heat, after all, you guys listened to me whine and bitch about being cold all winter. So, yes, you do have my sympathy.
This week will be good training for the Utica Boilermaker which by every stretch of the imagination is stinking hot!!! The Boilermaker is sponsored by the Saranac Brewery and is one of the most fun, crazy, exhilarating 15K races I've ever done. The support of the community is awesome, last year one of the fellows in the recovery area told us the race was bigger than Christmas for the city of Utica and I believe him.
There was devastating news though, on May 29th of this year, fire ripped through the breweries and even though they are having to rebuild the brewery, FX Brewery along with others in the area are totalling supporting Saranac.
FX is actually hosting this year's race, sort of co-anchoring with Saranac so the runner's would not be disappointed.
I'm not too sure of the change in the race route, but you can be certain, it won't dampen the spirit of the community, race officials and hosts of this year's 2008 Utica Boilermaker. All I know is there's BEvERages at the end of this race!!!
Oh, I'd better go and train for the post race function! Catch ya all later!!!!
Life's fun if you don't weaken,
