Stormy Weather

I swear, the only relief us South Texans get from the heat comes in the form of merciful “coldfronts.”  I think that’s what our winters are made of – a series of fronts strung together to keep the temperatures “fall-like” or “winter-like.”  This morning the temperature was 81 degrees, and the humidity was 90%.  Miserable.  The trails were a ghost town.  I decided to go long anyway.  I was shooting for 6 miles.

The tiny black specks in the distance are buzzards waiting for me to keel over.

I was soaked with sweat right away, but at least there was a breeze.  And then at mile 4 – drizzle!  The rain was glorious.  I stretched my arms out and closed my eyes for a second, taking it all in.  I could feel the temperature dropping a little.  The last 2 miles were easy.

Yay me!

It felt fantastic to reach 6 miles for the second time in my training.  My 10k is 4 weeks away and if the humidity is anything less than 90%, I will be a happy camper runner.

I’m dying to know – How is the weather in your area??
