Sickness in pursuit of health

Running makes me want to vomit, from sheer dislike of the activity, and from the body’s necessity to rebel against things it can't handle.

I asked Sergio what I should say about the run yesterday. Above is his comment. I think that sums it up pretty well. He ran nine miles yesterday and I ran 5.5. The sun seemed to think it was mid-August and the humidity was unbelievable. By the end of the night we both seemed to be suffering from dehydration/heat stroke symptoms. It was really lovely. I do not recommend long runs in the summer in Arkansas. I don’t think Sergio does either.
