Getting Humid

Yesterday was spent finishing up a baby blanket.

It turned out so stinkin’ cute.  I finished it off by bordering it with the bright blue color. Unfortunately, after I washed and dried it, I promptly wrapped it, so not dog or cat hair would get on it, and I didn’t get a picture!

Before settling in to crochet, I got in a sweaty 4 mile run. 

Summers in the Midwest mean humidity.  Sometimes it can be suffocating, but early in the morning before the blanket of humidity really sets in, it feels good.  I can feel my pores opening, my muscles relaxing, my lungs fully expanding as I take in the deep breaths of moist air.

There was just a hint of humidity yesterday morning and it felt really good.  I love the sweat I get from exercising in humidity. Talk about detoxing.

I had a nice sheen going and felt a little nauseous, so the toxins were movin’ yesterday morning.  That’s what I tell myself anyway (I was probably a little over-heated and needed some water)

After taking some big gulps of ice cold water, I leashed up the girls and we walked a little over a mile.
