Perfect running conditions

My run this morning wasn't long.  It was my usual weekday sneaking in a run while my husband gets ready for work run. I ran 3.69 miles, that's better than yesterday's 3.17 miles.  But the conditions were perfect and I really wished it was the weekend so I didn't have to hurry back so he could go to work.  It was overcast, in the 50s, slightly foggy, a cool mist in the air (seriously felt like I was running through misters like at restaurants and amusement parks), and a light breeze. It felt amazing!  This is August, right?  Feels like October and I freaking love it!

I'm getting a little nervous about our vacation later this month.  We'll be in Idaho and Utah and their temperatures lately are only slightly cooler than Hell.  I'm gonna die!  But, I am looking forward to the lower altitude and less hilly terrain.  Maybe I'll get a PR in the 5K my husband and I will be running while there.

I'm still contemplating another half-marathon next month.  It's one I've wanted to do for awhile, but the financial aspect of it freaks me out.  Sigh...I need a job.  And I plan on getting one around the end of September/beginning of October.  Just have to get through our vacation, my husband's half marathon (in less than a month), the beginning of school, figuring out our kids' extracurricular activity schedule, and the Red Sox/Rockies game first.  I'm so nervous about this, I haven't worked since January 2007 when I quit my job at a fiscal intermediary to become a stay-at-home mom.
