Nope...I'm not talking about cigarettes....and I'm not talking about human spontaneous combustion. But apparently after my run this morning...I was literally smoking. We decided to go for an 8 mile training run this morning as my last decently long run before the marathon. We pushed the pace pretty good running about 9:30/mile and by the end we were running 8:30/mile. It was nice to do an intermediate distance and push the pace over a wide span of time. When we finished the run...I took a seat on a curb to catch my breath. My friend looks over and says "OMG!! YOU ARE SMOKING!!" I must have had a really confused look on my face. But apparently my whole body was giving off steam...and I looked up at her husband and his head was smoking too! haha. She said it looked like we ran super fast and were "on fire"..then when we stopped we were still smoking. It looked soooo funny. I felt more like one of those commercials where you can see the green stench steaming off someone..and that's probably more along the lines of what it was. But I'll pretend that I ran so fast that I caught on fire and was smouldering after I stopped.
