It’s 103 degrees, why are you running at 5pm?

On the drive home today, the rush hour traffic crawled along Hwy 360 and the temp bounced from 103 to 105. Just another June day in Austin. It’s actually not an unusual sight to see someone jogging in the heat of the day around here – it’s a pretty fitness oriented city – but I wonder: is it really wise to go out jogging along a major highway in this kind of heat?

I saw this woman today jogging up the 360 hill in the blistering heat of the day. I wonder what led her to choose that time of day? Is life so busy that she couldn’t find a better time? Or was she purposely trying to make the workout all that much harder?
