It was 113 in La Mesa today.
It is no longer (officially) summer.
It's supposed to "cool off" to 93 tomorrow.
After an unusually cool summer, I guess we finally have our heat.
But really, 113 is sorta ridiculous.
Actually, the heat started this weekend. Lucky us, this is the weekend, we decided to do our 10 mile run, so to avoid the heat, heat, we decided to run early. By 6:30, Walter and I met up with Mik and Kat. Betty decided to start even earlier than we did.
|At 6:30, San Diego Bay was beautiful...but you can almost see the heat over the city, can't you?|
I do have some concerns about the effect that my current "run two times a week"
It doesn't take much sun to suck the life right outta me.
Anyway, I did 10 miles in 1:50 (10:57 pace). If I can hold onto something close to that in Long Beach, I'll knock almost 10 minutes off my PR, but I can't get too concerned about that. The big effect may come this weekend, when we attempt a 2 hour run (11 miles). It'll be our longest run before Long Beach.
After the run, we went to a breakfast fundraiser for Sports for Exceptional Athletes. It was kinda cute. The athletes served breakfast (even if the breakfast itself was pretty iffy). We didn't stay long because it seemed like EVERYONE had stuff to do, including Walter and me. Our plan for the day was to go to Temecula for some wine tasting and then that night we had tickets to see Kathy Griffin at Pechanga on Saturday night.
Now, I know that Kathy Griffin isn't everyone's cup of tea, but I think she is very funny.
Walter and I met up with Daisy and Machu Picchu (I swear, I am not the one who makes up these names. That's Betty's doing) and as funny as KG was, Daisy may be funnier. Our dorkiest moment probably came when we were trying to do cool FB/Blog pix. I don't know how "the kids" do it. I cannot, for the life of me, take a "cool picture." Every time I attempt that cool pouty look, I end up looking like Donald Duck...definitely, not cool. Daisy and MP tried to coach me suggesting that I do a pout, and not a duck face with wrinkles.
I pray that Daisy has deleted the photo-evidence. I haven't seen them posted on FB yet, so I may be safe. They really were hideous. However, the women in front of us were completely entertained by our attempts to photograph me looking sultry, which is really a really difficult look to pull off when you're laughing so hard, you're almost crying.
|Waiting for KG to start (me, MP, and Daisy). Yes we are HAWT!|
|It's not the pouty look...and at least I have MOST of Walter's face in the viewfinder|
|The crowd at Cathy...the guys in black were some of her "gays."|
Oh, and it's still hot!
