It's been a heat wave in the US. Last year when I was in London for this event, it was hot as well, so I'm not sure what I was thinking when I packed. I even saw the forecast was for rain. I grabbed a light windbreaker for running, but didn't think about anything else.

Walking around this morning wasn't bad, and my run was nice, but it started raining when I want to get food. It was chilly, and with rain forecast, I knew I'd be struggling for the next two days. As I was looking for food, I saw a sporting goods/shoe store with some sweatshirts on display and wandered in.

I didn't want to spend a lot, but I needed something. With the Olympics coming, lots of choices, though not too many in XXL. I managed to grab a subdued zip up hoodie on the clearance rack for a reasonable price and grabbed it.

Now I should survive London in July.
