It's definitely summer here!

It's past 10 and it finally dropped down to 95 degrees! It was so hot today, yet I still saw quite a few people running around Reid Park at 7 pm when it was still at least 100--brave souls. I miss running there! I decided to run in the mornings now when the temperature is more bearable, so that I can save myself from the awful headaches I get from running in the heat. Except I don't want to run at the park so early because it has a reputation. One of my cardio kickboxing buddies almost got raped there, and I am not taking any chances. So I have to stick to the Tucson International Airport, a four mile run round trip from my house. But...I think I'll be out for a while. I just donated my precious O+ blood today and even walking upstairs leaves me panting now :(

Oh man, it really sucks that the place you like to run is shady in the early morning. Glad you are figuring something out, though, definitely important to stick with that routine.

I have never donated blood, and I don't even know my blood type! Do you do it at work?

I need to donate blood. I hope you can find a safe and fun place to run. It's a shame you can't enjoy a nice place because of awful people.

I work right next door to a hospital. Every once in a while the Red Cross comes in and has a blood drive, so I do it as regularly as I can. I only started donating last year because the location is so convenient--no excuses now! My incentive to start was to learn my blood type!

I'm still feeling tired and I can't handle very much physical exertion without being short of breath. I hope I can survive kickboxing tomorrow morning!
