Now it's time to start obsessing over things I have no control over. Those are much easier than obsessing about the things that I actually do have control over, because the latter often requires you to take some kind of action.
Eagleman forecast, 7 days out: Overnight low 59*F, high 81*F. Times of sun and clouds.
Normally 81*F is a pleasant enough forecast, but I'm just not finding it so reassuring. Last year the high was 85*F, low of 63*F, and out on the course it was absolutely scorching, without a morsel of shade in sight and with the super-high humidity that is typical there.
But it can always be worse! Just keep your fingers crossed for low winds and lots of clouds and hopefully I'll get approval to switch into the 45-49 age group for that 6:50AM start instead of the 8:08AM Athena start. No word on that yet, though.
