It was hot and sticky. The kind of day that makes you want to stay inside. Even I, who would always rather be outside than stuck in an office all day, was not looking forward to stepping out the doors into the wall of heat.
With the exception of various wildlife, occasional dogs, and extreme heat, my runs are generally uneventful. If I wasn’t looking for something to write about, I surely wouldn’t find it. Yet, for two consecutive days, it’s all happening.
The hot, humid days are making their fickle transition to the crisp, breezy days of fall. Though fall does not officially start for a few weeks, the first day of September brings the promise of brilliant color and pumpkin everything just around the corner.
A huge cup of coffee sits beside me as I try to stave off the sleepiness that lingers in my eyelids. They so want to close, but I have another busy day ahead. The last in a row of several that caused my current state of sleepiness.
