Hershey, Hot Weather, Half Naked, Hump Day!


I'm suddenly nervous. I've never been a part of a "sold out" race. 2,500 participants? Where will I rank in the mass of chocolate loving runners? As long as Peter is waiting for me at the finish line with a 5 lb chocolate bar, I think I may have a chance of finishing in the top half.

I never did finish that chocolate bar. My former boyfriend and I tried everything with it and ended up thowing it out. I don't think that would happen if I got another. *Hint to Peter*

Anyway, today was my first half-naked run day of the year! I have been looking forward to this for quite some time!

Unfortunately, the lack of clothing didn't make the run any less difficult (it was 88 degrees when I ran). Gingers don't do well in the sun or heat. It's almost comparable to the Mogwai who don't do well in water. We both turn into mean spirited ugly creatures and cause havoc on the Earth when exposed to these elements. But, like the badass runner that I am (I'd like to think I am), I toughed it out for 5 miles. My pace did suffer a little, but in the end, I was happy I finished. 47:42 was my time.

Tomorrow will be a much deserved rest day as I have run for 6 days straight. But I'll get back to it on Friday since I'll be in Hershey all day Saturday riding roller coasters.

Here's my personal favorite...

So excited! It should be an awesome weekend!!!!!!!

Have you ever participated in a "Sold Out" Race? Was it scary that so many participated?

Have you ever had the pleasure of going to Hershey Park in PA?

What do you wear for your hot summer runs to stay as cool as possible?

Do you like roller coasters? Do you have an all-time favorite roller coaster?


  1. I hope you wore your sunscreen?!?! We gingers have to look out for each other!!

    1. Haha, right! I didn't wear sunscreen actually. Only face moisturizer, SPF 15. Does that count?
