Weather Conditions

The end of September is the shoulder season for heat and humidity in Georgia. Some years the weather is cool. 2016 was one of the hottest years yet. Because of the unknowns, it’s best to be prepared for heat and humidity. Also, hot is relative to where you’re from. If you’re not from the south it’s safe to say that even if it’s a ‘fall’ day it may be hot to you.

Some athletes make the mistake of only training in the early morning hours when it is cooler. Make sure you do some training runs late morning as you’ll be running later in the day, especially if you have a later start wave.
