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