Heat Wave!

I'm not going to complain about the heat today... because I still like it better than the ugly cold white stuff.

I got up this morning at 5am for a run.  The windows on the main floor were all steamed up.  <hint>
I opened the patio door and some water dripped onto the floor.  <hint>
I stepped outside and my skin immediately got clammy.
Yup, good ole Midwest Humidity!

Shamefully I admit, I did not go for a run.  Instead I crawled back into bed and chatted with my hubby for a couple minutes before he had to go to work.  A couple hours later, I finally made it into my sneakers.  With the kiddos in tow, we moved our morning operations to the cool basement, where we watched a movie while I got my 6 miles in for the day.

Big Girl was on a camera kick this morning, and I was her prime target... so you are treated with some proof fashion shots of my run.

I really need some new quotes for my treadmill dash... Any Suggestions?

Look real close... Can you name the movie we watched??

After lunch, we took a drive to the grocery store...

On the way back...

Whew!  It's been hot this week!  
Hope you all are staying hydrated and safe... run inside or early morning.  
If your temps are below 85, please don't brag...
RuN HaPpY!

  1. Wizzard of Oz! Our favorite too :) Love all of your quotes!

  2. We're off to see the wizard! The wonderful WIZARD OF OZ!!

    Ever see Wicked?!

    It's definitely hot here as well, but I don't think we're supposed to hit 100 until possibly Friday. I opted not to run this morning, but still went for a bike ride. I might just have to move my trainer into the basement after Septembers race if it's still hot out.

  3. That's a great idea to put the quotes on your treadmill screen. I HAVE to do that now.

    Great movie choice! I will be on the treamill tonight too. I'm thinking it will be episodes of The Office to keep me entertained. :)

  4. I just want to say that you totally inspire me!

  5. I am so trying to feel sorry for everyone having a heat wave, but I don't know our high today was 66 and the high for tomorrow is going to be 60! I am so cold! It has been like this for way to long! I want some summer heat.

    I am glad you stayed inside for your run!

  6. LOVE the quotes on the "dashboard." (Do you think they'd let me do that at my gym?) ;)

  7. Since my treadmill is currently broken and I couldn't conveniently *hang out* in the gym while my brother was doing his physical therapy, I had to suffer the heat. 6ish miles in 99*+ .... I think I'll be crashing early tonight. lol

  8. You go...I'm bored after 2 miles on the treadmill. I love the motivational spread on the dash of the treadmill. Really cool...may have to put something like that over my fridge door to keep divert my attention from food!!!

  9. I love your treadmill dash, such a great idea!! I love the quote "no one ever drowned in sweat"! It's awesome you got on the treadmill, it would gave been so easy to forgo the whole run, kudos!

  10. Your basement is my basement: treadmill, TV, kids watching movies (lately it has been Toy Story 3). I love the motivation on the TM. Great idea! We will be hitting 100F tomorrow so I too will be in the basement.

  11. It is hot here too. I've stuck with the treadmill for that very reason. I love your little dash of inspirational quotes! Lift Your Sole shares TONS of fabulous quotes, check there!

  12. Holy's been so hot here too (MN). But, yes, definitely better than snow!!

  13. So envious of your home gym. Our basement is ALMOST done and hopefully I'll be able to get a treadmill by winter. :)
    Nice job getting your run in despite this ridiculous heat you're all getting!

  14. Nice stuff! I do love home gym. Its cheap and you truly enjoy it. Feels at home though!

  15. I'm wishing I had a treadmill in this heat! I had to wait for the sun to go down tonight to run!
