I ran the lake today. Actually, it’s a series of connected ponds fed by the
Tigris, and I am not sure how far around it is, but it sure seemed like a long way. It was at least as long as the 3.75 mile run I did two days ago. I was trying for 4 miles, but was so hot and tired at the turn around point that I decided to just continue around, which I thought would be shorter. Usually if it’s 110 degrees or less I can run outside during the day, but I think that I am going to have to start getting up earlier and running before work, or running with my camelback. According to the gym scale, I have lost eleven pounds since I have been here.
