I woke up at about 6:00 a.m. yesterday and decided I was going to go jogging right away. After I got dressed, I opened the door and was met by this awful mixture of rain, snow and wind. I immediately turned around and went jogging on my treadmill. I couldn’t believe that snow had already fallen. (And, it is still here.) I am not ready for winter yet. What happened to climate warming? I don’t see any evidence of it here. If anything, what I have experienced over this past summer and fall is climate cooling. (No, I don’t really wish for the warming of the planet. I just want to experience decent summer and fall seasons.)
Up to this point, I have done most of my jogging outdoors. I can see that’s about to change fairly quickly. In preparation for the Torch Relay I will be occasionally jogging outdoors just to acclimatize to the weather. Personally, I think people shouldn’t have to acclimatize to weather. It’s like when your mom told you that eating liver is an “acquired taste”. Why would I possibly want to acquire the taste of an organ? It’s the garburator of the human body. Yuck is all I can say.
