“A person should set his goals as early as he can and devote all his energy and talent to getting there. With enough effort, he may achieve it. Or he may find something that is even more rewarding. But in the end, no matter what the outcome, he will know he has been alive.” - Walt Disney

NTX in August

Welcome to North Texas in August - the thermometer on the back porch (in the shade) officially registered 104 here on Sunday.  We've been hanging out pretty steadily in these temps for a few days now, and are forecast to endure a few more days of this before a "weak cold front" dips us back down into the high 90's later in the week.  Sad when you get excited about double digits.

Whew, let me tell you, this made for a pretty uncomfortable run on Saturday morning.  Even "only" doing 6 miles, and starting at 5am (already 84° at 5am) was pretty brutal.

On the bright side, training in these temps should, theoretically, make at least a couple of my fall races feel a little easier...  ;-)
