Labor day is over, and the dog days of summer are quickly coming to an end. I know this because the shadows are getting longer, the days are ending a bit earlier each week, and the whining about the end of lazy summer days has begun. And I know THIS because I am one of the loudest of those whiners… summer’s end gets me every year.
But it’s important to remember that the heat and humidity are still very much with us. Summer carries well into September, and even October can have some severe humid days. This past week alone has been some of the hottest days I’ve experienced outside. The sun is waning but it’s still very important to continue to take those sun precautions, and protect yourself internally and externally from the strong sun as we are out and about exercising and enjoying our outdoor activities.
