A Runner's Journal
I guess I won’t be wearing boots or cozy sweaters for a while after all. Oh, September, you’re such a tease.
Hurry up, fall!
At least you'll get plenty of use out of your cute new sundress! As excited as I am to be able to don boots and sweaters right now, it makes me fearful that I am going to be completely frozen here in about 6 weeks.
I thought about you and your new Alaskan climate! I am, almost quite literally, withering away from heatstroke and jealousy. How much more extreme is the cold in Alaska compared to the Upper Midwest?I have to say, I am always surprised now at how much colder Michigan is when I'm up there in the fall or early winter. I expect it to be cold, but I'm so acclimated to Texas that Michigan kinda knocks the wind out of me. And I'm still trying to figure out how I can update my wardrobe for my annual December trip to Michigan: leggings? More sweater tights?
Anchorage won't get as cold as other parts of Alaska (like Fairbanks) because it's on the coast, but I still expect a more severe winter than I'm used to in southern Minnesota. I think the bigger adjustments for me will be the lack of a real summer (the highs usually don't get above the low 70s but this summer has been one of the coldest on record with lots of days only reaching the upper 50s or 60s) and the shortness of autumn.
Oof, that is one chilly summer! You will have to fly south like a migrating bird to seek some warmth :-)(But oh, how I would love a week of low 70s...that sounds so nice right now.)
Ouch, we are about to begin a beautiful stretch of days with highs in the upper 70's and lows in the 60's. Sorry, I am not jealous of your heat.
Ooh...nice! I will miss being in Michigan this month, but them's the breaks this year. Enjoy the beautiful late summer running for me!Remind me and I will do another weather post in December or January...just to remind myself and all of you that it's not ALL bad down here. And hey--it hasn't even hit 100 yet today!
