I ran on the mall over lunch today. Oh, my was it hot and sticky. I was forced to stop at a snack stand to snag napkins to wipe the sweat out of my eyes.

All that remains of the 4th of July extravaganza on the mall is the snow fencing and an empty Folk Life Festival pavilions. It's been left to your run-of-the-mill tourist and jogger.

I'd missed a whole week of running due to a cold that Mac brought home. Honestly, I've been overdoing it and think I was a bit run down. I don't know if today's run was hard because of the heat or the training interruption. Either way, I took it slow.

We have a 14 mile run scheduled Saturday – just past half way!
