Funny Foto Friday: Should you be running?

Did you hear?  It's summer.  No really, the longest sunlight day of the year (for us northies) was on the 20th. Hippies everywhere lit incense and prayed to the Solstice gods to provide a bountiful harvest of pot....and college kids everywhere used it as yet another reason to party.  Also?  Now that it is summer it means that it is freaking hot.

Each year starting around mid June, the humidity in Phoenix goes from a eyeball drying 10% or so to a seemingly unbearable 30% or so.  Not bad when it is 80 degrees but a significant jump when it is 110.  I'm pretty sure the feels like temperature was "swamp ass".

So, my 9 mile run was rough this morning.  The increased humidity means that the low temps hover around 80-85 and suck my will to live.  Fortunately, it'll only be like this for a few more weeks and I can go back to my normal parched running.  Until then, here are a few running related funny fotos that I found on Facebook (while twitter was down yesterday).  Happy Friday!


Thank goodness there isn't a "Are you blogging? --> Go Running!" option

Oh yeah, I've made this mistake more than once
Don't worry though, totally had rum to make up for it



Ok, a few bonus pictures that I found lurking around the internet.  Each no more random than the last.

I have NO idea what are in Asian Doritos, but uhhh, I think I want some

Father of the year??  Perhaps.
The dude who took this picture? Freaking Man of the Century? Yes. Yes, indeed.

Huh, route still spelled wrong!

BTW, if you are going to repeat your Tweets on your blog, I am going to have to drop one. I realize it's summer and all, but I don't like reruns!

Heh...the rum picture reminds me of the time I posted a post-run photo of myself on FB and was soundly ridiculed by my friends/family because of my rummy caption: "The post-rum sweaty hair and funny face really make me look like a crazy person, huh?"

Here's the pic: http://goo.gl/RyUWh

Those last two pics are awesome!

Try coming to KC to run when it's also 80 degrees at 5 am with 85%-100% humidity. It is the worst thing in the entire world and we have it for a solid 2-3 months. We are in the midst of it early this year - usually we wait til July to be this miserable. This year we got lucky and it hit in mid June. Whopee!

Aww poor dysfunctional kneecaps!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought you didn't look fast on video ;) But I also think that of the track athletes I see on TV.

I take one pic while running occasionally. Usually sometthing striking but I am a wannabe photog. I use my iPhone so it's easy to whip out of my pack.

Great blog!!

Can't seem to find you on twitter... Help please?
