Twelve Hundred Seventy-Four


May 1, 2021
7.38 Miles in 1:17:46
Mood: Holy hot weather, Batman!
Soundtrack: Florence and the Machine "Ceremonials"

May hit, and with it came a mild heat wave. I started at Wash Park, but took a significant detour from my normal Wash Park run to head down to the intersection of Colorado Blvd and Evans so that I could get a picture of the Wyoming Buffalo electric box. My second capture of the 19 electric boxes in the Fifty State Animals series. (No idea why they only did 19, but I'll take what I can get.)

It was a really beautiful day, but I went somewhat during the peak of the warm temperatures, and by the final mile or two, I was really feeling overheated and warm. It's the first run in a long time that I did wearing short sleeves and shorts, and thank God for that, as if I had run in a long sleeve shirt and pants, I may have passed out from heat exhaustion. As it was, I had to stop at my car with a mile or so to go so that I could drink some water that I had brought with me so that I could power through to the end. I was extremely happy when I finally reached my mileage for the day and quit. Good run, but it wore me out.
