I was reminded of this past August when I ran in Death Valley and it was 125 degrees hotter than it was at 5:15 AM this morning.
If public school hadn't been canceled and practice had actually been held, maybe I would have spent those 90 mins staring at the black line considering which death I would have preferred.
Instead I went back to bed, the temperature of which was something comfortably between -9 and 116.
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
- Fire and Ice, Robert Frost
