Humidity is a runner's best friend
Friday was a rest day. I got invited to play the Amaury Nolasco & Friends Golf Classic. In its 2nd installment, Amaury brings to Puerto Rico TV celebrities and pro athletes along with some local personalities to play golf, have some fun in the sun and raise funds for CAP and VAL foundations. CAP is a NFPO dedicated to the welfare of cancer patients at the Pediatric Hospital in Puerto Rico. VAL stands for "Vive Alegre Luchando" (live happy battling) and its purpose is to bring happiness and hope to children diagnosed with cancer through fun activities and events. Got to play with President Charles Logan from the drama series 24 (real-life Gregory Itzin). Very nice, down-to-earth man and great golfing partner. It was hard to stay hydrated on a day like Friday. Temps and humidity both into the low 90s. Need to get used to the summer heat for the rest of the training season.
Week 2 starts tomorrow. Looking forward to incorporating an exercise routine on off days as well as hitting the pool twice a week. Hopefully will get a glimpse of our real-life President on Tuesday. Barack Obama will be in town.
