13 days to the Chicago Marathon! This morning I rested and slept in, until 6am. My back is still a bit tight and stiff in places, and I think a little worse after my 4 mile run yesterday, so decided to take it easy this morning. My intention is to exercise tonight, late in the day, so I can just take it easy afterwards. I was scheduled to play softball tonight, but that was cancelled due to rain. That will make it easier for me to get a run in, and then take it easy afterwards.
Otherwise, I’m just really looking forward to the fall weather coming into place, but it is just slow in happening. Even now, when the temperature has dropped somewhat, the dewpoint and humidity is still high, and less than tolerable for my taste. Right now, the temp is 69 deg, but the dewpoint is 66 deg, or sky high. Yes, it will not be as bad as mid-summer, but it will still feel far too humid for me. And it sounds like we can expect more of the same all the way through Thursday.
Here’s to hoping for good weather in Chicago on 10/10. See the long range forecast here: http://www.myforecast.com/bin/expanded_forecast_15day.m?city=14745&metric=false
