When my cousins started talking about a marathon that was coming up, I couldn’t guess they all wanted to get in on this.
I never was the best runner & I knew I wasn’t in shape for this, but they had a plan to get us all in shape.
My cousin Tony has his own beach beach house gym with zoned heating & cooling for customized temperature control settings. Normally, he uses the Heating & A/C plan to remain comfortable while he is toiling out, but in this case, every one of us had to test our comfort levels. Both of us knew that the marathon was going to be in the Summer & it was going to be miserably sizzling while every one of us were running. Both of us had to get used to running in warm conditions. So imagine how unbearable it was running on treadmills together in his basement with the heating plan cranked up! Oh, it was angry & every one of us were all dripping with sweat profusely. I had trouble even running a single mile in the start, but the more every one of us practiced, the easier it all became. Eventually when every one of us got closer to the marathon date, I was able to run seemingly forever without getting too exhausted, & that was with the heating plan toiling on a sizzling day! Well, on the day of the marathon, my parents decided to get us special presents. They said they didn’t want us to be too warm, so they got us cooling hats. These are hats that you dip in water to give cooling for thirds & they reflect the sun rays for extra cooling. Both of us all ran the marathon faster than every one of us thought every one of us could manage!
