If you’re on the east coast, or if you’re a weather channel aficionado, you’ve noticed the little issue of a record breaking heat wave on our hands. But this morning, when for the first time in I don’t know how long, I poked my head out the door and the heat and humidity weren’t *completely* unbearable, I decided it was finally safe to return to the roads for a run and abandon the stationary bike I’ve been strapped to these days. And anyone away from running for a longer than voluntary period of time will likely agree, the first one back was labored but so satisfying. The one thing I will say I did not miss, was the runner’s wave. It’s just awkward. And I don’t think it’s just because I’m socially inept and don’t always wear my glasses when I run, making said wavers more like flailing blobs.
