Yet another heat wave. This summer has been full of them. Of course, we'll have those who on every cold day this winter will declare "what global warming?" and make other silly statements, but the science doesn't lie, folks. Look at the big picture and listen to the research, not the politicians and radio show hosts who are motivated by their own greed and not the welfare of Americans. What is causing it is up for debate, but to deny that global warming is happening is downright moronic.
It makes running very challenging and I've been altering my workouts as a result of the heat. I've split up my workouts, doing half my mileage in the early morning hours before work while it's still dark and again in the evenings when things have cooled off a bit.
Looking forward to the cold front pushing through and bringing things down to a more seasonable level. Hurricane Earl could also provide some excitement, but I'm willing to bet it won't be much of a threat to us here in Maine. Who knows though, we'll see.
