Day 273 - the run into the sun
It sounds dramatic but isn't really. So at my "gym" (a big glorified room with some machines and free weights in it) all the treadmills are up front next to the windows. The windows face west. This means in the late afternoon the sun beats in heavily. Which would be no problem if they had blinds on all the windows which they don't. It being a strangely busy day, I got stuck on one of the treadmills with blind-less windows, and thus my normally profuse sweating turned into a gusher of salty liquid spraying violently in all directions. (How is that for lovely imagery?) I ran 2.7 in 26:30 to put me over the monthly record for the challenge. Then I realized afterwards there is one more day in the month!!!
