I got up at 5:30 for my morning run. By the time I tossed back a cuppa coffee and laced up the shoes, it was almost 6:00. The thermometer read 80 degrees, and the huge hazy sun was already making the non-shady streets difficult to stand. When I returned home 45 minutes later, I figured out exactly why: in addition to the heat, the dew point was 73 and humidity was 80%. Yikes. Not optimal conditions, although i'm addicted enough to the run that i'll continue to wake up at ungodly hours to get them in. I'm not complaining about summer - I do remember how awful this winter was! - but I am looking forward to running during my lunch hour without it feeling like attempted suicide.
