Breezy Ain't Easy

While Ike has totally missed FL, (I'm sorry, SW Texas -- you guys have to be pooping your pants right about now looking at those forecasts!) it is sweeping nearby Cuba, so we've had gray and windy weather the past two days. Today, it has been particularly windy, with gusts around 25 mph.

Now, if that breeze brought cool, fresh air with it, I wouldn't mind it; in fact, I would errect a church in its honor and worship there on designated holy days. But that's not the case. It's still 91 out there, with 85% humidity, so that wind basically just feels like Satan is whistling at me.

Therefore, you may aptly conclude that my 3 miler this evening was a wee bit of a struggle; with a total time of 29:39, you'd assume correctly.

Same thing here in Orlando, but not quite as windy. So annoying when it's still so hot out!

Glad you guys are safe from big IKE. I don't even think I would have braved a run in that mess. You rock!

I prefer to think of the breeze as a giant hair dryer. But if you locate that cool breeze, let me know.

Doesn't sounds like a fun time. Does the humidity ever go away?
