Sunday. Eight miles scheduled on the day of daylight savings time. Usually I run in the early morning hours, but it was too cold, and I was still very tired from losing that precious hour of sleep. So I told myself I’d run in the afternoon after church. So I did. Temps in the hi 50s/low 60s. Sun shining. Perfect day for a run. So I throw on my visor to soak up sweat and go for an 8-miler. Guess I forgeot about my bald head and the sun. It didn’t occur to me that wearing the visor was to invite a weird sunburn! Got home today and after the shower discovered this:
I’m going to be explaining this one for a while.
By the way, the run was good. Averaged a 12 minute/mile for 8, but that doesn’t account for the 4-6 minutes I stopped for water and spoke with a friend of mine. So I averaged a pace under 12 minutes per mile. Not bad. But I felt it today. The sun sapped me of energy. I’ve been tired all day from the fast run and the sun and am headed to bed.
Okay. Here is a self-made pic of my legs. Really, now. Do these legs merit a catcall from anyone, much less a 60-year old man?
