nature’s april fool?

Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it.  ~Russel Baker

Except, it’s not summer. It’s the first of April.

Today the high was something like 87 degrees Fahrenheit. Tomorrow it is supposed to be 88 degrees.

I am planning to run 4 or 5 miles tomorrow… although I may go to the gym, if it’s too warm. But something in me hates to “escape the heat” so early in the season! I mean, if I’m fleeing the heat in March, how bad is it going to be in July?

Argh. I fear we will pay dearly for this mild winter.

Also, I’ve been doing very well at remembering to use sunscreen before my runs (yay me!), but I’m still getting a pretty dark runner’s tan. My mother says I need to be extra vigilent about putting sunscreen on my face, because with my sunglasses, I’m getting a bit of a raccoon-eyes look. 🙂
