Early Fall in NOLA

The weather Gods have been smiling kindly upon the Crescent City for the past couple weeks. The premature fall-like weather has been a welcome change to a usually hot, muggy, miserable month of August. A trough of wind shear has settled over the Gulf Coast and has not only brought drier air with it, but has warded off tropical weather (ie Hurricanes) from even approaching the Gulf of Mexico.

Yesterday, the weather was so amazing, I ran 13 miles and didn't think twice about it. The temperatures and lack of humidity were so enjoyable, I was sad to see the run come to an end. I did two laps around Audubon Park, St Charles Avenue from the park to Jackson Avenue and back ... and then did an additional lap around the park just for funsies. With the Tupelo Marathon on Sunday morning, I should be in the middle of a taper this week ... but it's just so hard to resist a run with this weather.

Let's hope high temps in the 60's are on the horizon. Fingers crossed!
