Sunny Runs & Sunset Swims

Today was a perfect training day (and also perfect for getting back into things after a week of being sick)! It was suuuuuper sunny and hot this morning, and extremely humid — I was dying a bit during my run! Luckily my iPod shuffle (and my new favorite songs like “The Way it Used to Be” by Mike Posner, “Money and the Power” by Kid Ink, and “Best I Ever Had” by Gavin DeGraw) saved me!

neon & my iPod shuffle: my must-haves for running.

A couple hours after my run, my dad and I drove up to my grandma’s lake nearby (Pines Lake) and did a 2.2 mile open water swim. The water was beautiful and placid, and the humidity had died down — so the evening was a perfect temperature!
