This bizarre cool weather we’re having might suck for enjoying fun summer things like going to the beach. But for “lazy” runners like me, it’s awesome. I can sleep in, eat breakfast, and head out for a late-morning run without dying.

Obviously a lovely day for a long run. However, I made a bonehead move and didn’t wear sunscreen because … I didn’t feel like it. Which is stupid for anyone, but especially stupid for a ginger like me. Did I think my skin would magically not burn?? Did I think the sun would be weaker around 11am? Did I think 90+ minutes in the sun would be good for my skin? I think I hoped that it would be cloudy, despite that there were barely any clouds in the sky when I left.
