Got out for an hour today even though I woke with a hacking cough. It faded as the morning went on and is most likely a lingering effect from the party on Saturday - there was lots of smoke in the air.
One thing which is really remarkable here is how people react to the cooler weather. As the post title notes, it's overcast and kind of cool, really rather pleasant actually, but the way folks complain about the cold you'd think we're in the dead of winter close to one of the poles. I just don't get that. To me, this weather doesn't even warrant a long sleeve shirt and shorts are fine. Doing the math, it turns out it's actually 71 degrees outside. Not cold at all, but people are wearing jackets and hats. When high summer comes I can see I'm going to be miserable. Oh well.
There was a weird odor outside while I was running. Sort of like a wet dog. Not entirely unpleasant, but not real enjoyable either. It was a familiar smell, but I couldn't place it and I'm probably glad I didn't.
Anyway my run was really pretty uneventful. Lots of sand. I went 6.75 miles in 1 hour with an average heart rate of 157 beats per minute. Pretty laid back.
Thanks for reading.
