Yeah, it's embarrassing, but...

Good morning everyone,

It's going to be another steamy one out there today! We can expect a high of 35C today and that heat will continue as far as the forecasters can see...35C, sunny,'s almost perfect...just drop the humidity and we'd be living in paradise! ha ha!

I'll be heading out for a run in a bit, but I'll be keeping it short today-I was originally thinking I might go for a longer run today, but I doubt it, with this humidity. I'll probably end up running only 5 or 6km.

I shaved my legs again on Sunday. I hadn't done it for a few months because it's so unmanly I think. If you had asked me 20 years ago if I would ever shave my legs, I probably would have laughed or said only if you paid me a lot of money. At that time I had no idea I'd be living in Hiroshima with its 35C heat and 99.9% humidity!

Sure, I still feel a bit embarrassed about it-it feels a bit weird but it is sooooo much cooler than before! It's like my body feels 2C cooler! It's such a nice feeling when I'm riding my bike and instead of sweating to death, I'm actually feeling a bit of a breeze!

If any of you guys out there have hairy legs and are looking for ways to beat the heat, I recommend giving them a shave! 

I get a bit self-conscious about it, it's true-especially when I see people looking at them, but then I remind myself that I can either be a tad self-conscious and feeling cool or "normal" and feeling hot and this weather, I'll take cool every time! In fact, I'm thinking about shaving my head next...just kidding! Nature is doing a good enough job of taking my hair all by herself, she doesn't need my help! ha ha!

Have a great day!
