What is 81 days? Well, today it is 88 degrees. That’s pretty hot! On February 16, it was -17 degrees. That’s pretty cold! In the 81 days between Febraury 16 and today, it warmed up 105 degrees!
That’s a pretty significant change. I’m definitely not fully adjusted to the heat yet. Cayuga Trails 50 is only a few weeks away. Last year, I melted – and it was only 75 degrees! This year has the potential to be much worse. It hasn’t rained in ages and everything around here is drying up – I thought this was a West Coast problem?!
Anyhow, I’m going to keep one eye on the forecast – who knows what the next 81 days will bring!
Do you do anything special to get ready to run/race in the heat?
