Catch You On The Other Side

We leave tomorrow for Singapore. It'll be our end of summer vacation, coming back just before school begins in early August. 13 hours to Tokyo, plus 7 more hours to Singapore, is going to be a long long flight.

I hope to keep my training schedule while I'm there. I missed one run this week because something I ate gave me a fever, chills, and a different kind of runs than I was planning. My doctor said he's seen a lot of that lately; makes me wonder why. How does a whole city suddenly start having more cases of food poisoning than usual?

Today it's 102F + 27% humidity in Dallas, and 90F + 89% humidity in Singapore. I'll be testing first-hand that old "it's not the heat, it's the humidity" thing. Uh-huh. If I survive the humidity, next Sunday, I'm signed up for the
Mizuno Wave 10K there. On the plus side, there's a 12 hour difference in time zones, so I should be wide awake for my 6:00 AM runs!

Singapore. I'm so jealous. It is hot here in Dallas - way too hot. Have fun at the race!

Please be sure to give a full report of your vacation. I'm with Susan -- jealous (but not of the heat).

Have a great trip! Singapore would be a fascinating place to run in - I hope you'll write a post on it when you come back.

I remember once stepping out of Singapore airport, and the heat hitting me like a fist. I couldn't imagine running in those conditions (not that I want to discourage you).
