how’s the weather up there?

it’s begun. my daily. no my MULTIPLE daily checks of the weather in augusta. it’s become a total obsession. back when i was running with the BRA ~ my old running group ~ coach eko always tried to hold us off until a week before race day and though it was hard, i readily agreed that given i’m not god ~ or any variation of said all powerful beings that may or may not exist ~ there truly is no point in obsessing over something i can’t change.

but that doesn’t matter now. i know i can’t change it but i want to see it. prepare for it. know it. i want every detail and expectation set and ready. i’m 18 days out … 18 days!!! HOLY. CRAP. the furthest the forecast goes is 10 days. friday sept. 21 expected high 81. low 63. precipitation chance 0%. oh my. it couldn’t get much better than that. maybe a degree or two cooler but i’d happily take 81. fall is in the air and i need it to stick around for 18 days. not just 10. please mother nature, don’t tease.
