Sweat 1: If you haven't been following the weather reports or been outside, it is an understatement of the worst kind to simply say that it is really, really hot here in DC. It's like an instant sauna outside - just add a human being.
Sweat 2: Something possessed me to go back to the gym tonight. I'm not sure what, and I'm just hoping it can be exorcised without much effort. Here's what I learned: wandering around Israel for the past two months does not prepare one (in this case, me) for walking on a treadmill at 3 miles per hour at a small incline. I won't even mention the elliptical machine....
The other thing I learned though, is that however hot you think you are in the gym after working out, it's nothing compared to the heat you find when you walk out the door to the parking lot.
(but if you open the windows and drive fast enough, you get a small, warm breeze that actually feels cool, since you're soaking wet!)
