Running outside in September is not easy

Yesterday was hot. Really hot. And sticky. Its the end of September and it feels like July outside! It discouraged me a little about 3 minutes into my run with Erin. How was I possibly going to run 3 miles at a decent pace and not fall over? It was definitely more of a challenge then I thought, I had times where I felt like the sounds of me breathing could be heard by everyone in a mile radius. But, I finished and I finished with a better time then the 5K, so progress has been made! I was able to keep a 10mile/minute pace and went a little over 3 miles. Now, how I am going to move up to 4 miles next week.....? That seems like a hard challenge that I'm taking on. I don't think I will be nearly as confident in 6 days.

Erin ran 20 miles on saturday and I can barely run over 3.....I would definitely DIE if I had to run that far. So crazy!
