CAN YOU SAY HUMIDITY???

I just talked to Don, who is in Louisville right now, and the temperature is 94 degrees, but the humidity is 42%! That is bone dry compared to here! My lips would chap at that dryness! Its 75 degrees here and 87% humidity. Personally, I would rather have the high temperatures than the humidity. If you don't know what 87% humidity feels like, imagine yourself in a steam room, running, biking, or whatever. It sucks the life out of you. This morning, all I wanted to do was a short 2 mile run and still ended up walking towards the end because I couldn't breathe!

There's also a no wetsuit swim, and the swim course has changed, and is likely to be short, for safety reasons. Heavy rains have resulted in a change in the swim course, to a more protected area. But what is really funny is that Don and Bruce (the other guy he is staying with) have both bought skin suits! LOL! Bruce had ordered one ahead of time, but got an e-mail saying they were "sold out." Apparently, the company that sells these shipped all their stock to Louisville anticipating a no wetsuit swim. I hope some of the blogger got themselves one!

Ah, innaugural events. Don loves these. He is always trusting of new things, so is willing to take whatever comes his way.

Okay, so cal me a humidity wimp...

I grew up in Toledo, OH and I fully know what humidity over 80% feels like.

But at this point of my life, having moved to the desert southwest, it's all relative.

BTW - It rained last night and it's 70% humidity here at the moment. I'm not sure I can breathe...
