What a difference 14 degrees makes! Today when I ran, the temperature was ~70 degrees. That’s hot for running, but it’s a lot cooler than it was Sunday when I ran. Even though I went out at about the same time of day, it was 84 on Sunday.
Before you ask in the comments: Yes, the humidity was different, too. Today the humidity was ~78%, but on Sunday it was ~60%. (That’s right. As Sid explained to Dead Runners, humidity decreases as temperatures increase.) I was dripping after both runs, but Sunday still felt a lot more challenging.
Bonus! I picked up two quarters from the gutter this AM.
