5.3 Miles!

Yesterday I ran 5 miles. Today I did 5.3! Baby steps.

I came across a little park around mile 2 that had a playground and a water fountain. Thank god for public water fountains! Until I started running in 90 degree heat I thought those metal fountains were like urban cesspools. It's funny how that opinion changes when you're drenched in sweat, your throat feels like sandpaper, and you know you still have to cover 3 miles of hot-ass sidewalk to get home. I drank from that fountain like I'd never had a drink in my life.

There was a fountain installation in the park, too. The metal spheres spray water. There was a heat rainbow in the middle of the cluster that appeared whenever the sun broke through the clouds. I was able to catch it before running away.

Cheers to 10 miles in 2 days!
