what a weekend. there was so much debauchery involved i don't even want to get into it. nothing too scandalous... just too much of everything. too much sun, too much booze, too much food... too much! not enough sleep and not enough water. i need to take it easy.
last night i slept over at my parent's house because i had a doctor's appointment this morning in the burbs. i am back in the city now.... phewf!
i have some questions for the runners out there. on saturday, i went for a 5-mile run. it was HOT outside. at least 32°C... more like 40°C with the humidex. we are talking 90°F to 104°F for the americans out there. HOT.
so i put on sunscreen, and drank some water before i went... but am seriously overheating. thank goodness i found two parks along the way with water fountains... i glugged it down and put some on the top of my head, but i need to buy some summer running things.... and soon, if i don't want to go back to the dreadmill.
1) i need some sort of portable water. i do NOT want to hold a water bottle while i'm running... so i guess a belt? does anyone have any recommendations?
i found this belt online - the ultimate direction thunderbolt belt.
what a stupid name haha. i can't really find anything else that evenly distributes the water around the waist. online reviews at mountain equipment co-op said that it's ok, but that the belt stretches when it gets wet from the water and from sweat.
2) i also need a good running hat. any tips or recommendations? i want something that isn't heavy, isn't annoying (because i'm not a hat wearer) and that also protects my delicate features from the sun. anyone?
