For the last couple of runs, I've gotten up each morning expecting to find just a touch of pre-Fall chill in the air during the run. Each time, I've been bitterly disappointed. Yesterday, for example, it was 73 degrees and humid. It wasn't unpleasantly hot, but it was a bit stuffy. As a runner, I live for crisp fall mornings in the mid-50s to mid 60s. Okay, it's still August, but it has been a long hot summer, and I'm ready for the morning temps to drop into the 60s.
Because I worry about these things, I went to Weather.com to look at the average figures for the month of August. the predicted temperatures have been running consistently 3 degrees above average. This is not earth shaking, but it does confirm my sense that we're overdue. Hopefully it is not additional evidence that we've broken the planet . . .
