Harbor Run

I came up to San Diego yesterday, and spent the night last night. Usually when we're in San Diego I don't bother running because we don't stay in an area that's good for it. However, I didn't want to push my run to  tomorrow morning (Saturday), so I decided to be brave and drive down to the harbor for a run.

I had visions of a cool morning by the harbor, gleefully running along. But, just like my town in Mexico, San Diego has been experiencing a mini-heat wave. It's not exactly extremely HOT (it was about 85-90 yesterday), but it's been humid, which just makes it worse.

I do not run well in the heat. I never have. This is one of the main reasons I get up at the crack of dawn to run. I hate running in heat. But, at 6:30 this morning the temperature was already at 75, and humid. I had planned on doing 4 miles, but I think I only got in about 2.5. I'm actually fine with this, because, after all, 2.5 miles is better than nothing.
It really is a nice place to run (save for comments made by men on benches). I specifically ran away from the restaurants and attractions and out toward the airport - there's a path that goes quite a ways. There are a lot of people out biking, walking, and running, and the parking at the actual harbor is free before 8am.

  1. I miss out on the comments made by men around here, I guess....:) But we had 46F and fog this morning :)
