That's not entirely because I haven't been running, nor is it because of the monotony of the normal run. Where I run outside along the Hudson River is surprisingly beautiful.
But I haven't been running outside lately. It's the heat. This has become my usual run:
Seeing this photo bores even me. (And I've told you that I look beat to hell when I run! Do you believe me now?) Luckily Dateline was on that day - 10 tedious miles - and Keith Morrison is so inadvertently hilarious that it takes my mind off of most anything. Other treadmill hits include: So You Think You Can Dance, Last Comic Standing, or NBC's Thursday night sitcom line-up.
Yeah, I'm ready for this heat to break. You know, in late September.
