This is the hardest I've trained for running since I started racing almost 3 years ago and it is totally paying off. We did a 10 miles time trial at Tempe Town Lake yesterday and the weather was horrid. At least it was cloudy, or I swear the sun would have fried me to a crisp with the amount of humidity in the air.
I left my house at 4:15AM and it was already 90 degrees and humid. I honestly can not even fathom training for a marathon in the summer in some place like Florida. Kudos to those Florida runners for being totally bad ass. I would die.

I saw two different movies this weekend, too. On Friday, I went to go see Step Up Revolution. The story line was pretty lame, but the dance scenes were awesome!
This movie is definitely worth seeing just for the flash mob scenes. I actually really liked it, even though the acting was just okay. But I suppose that a lot of the actors are actually dancers first, actors second, so I can ignore that. I couldn't find a clip of my favorite dance scene, but the flash mob dance in the office building was really cool, too.
I also saw the new Batman movie. If you have not seen it, go. Go right now. So incredibly good. I think it's the best of all of them. Anne Hathaway as Catwoman was perfect. I might even go see it again in the theater, it was that good.
