What a pleasant feeling it is to experience one of those rare May days where the weather is perfect. With a temperature in the 70’s, the fresh smell of the new plants and trees, and the fragrance of the blooming flowers, it is as close to Eden as you can get. This is the time you want to be a kid with few cares and some type of athletic contest to play. It is easy to get loose and perform well. It is not too hot, so you do not tire out as quickly. I played baseball and ran track in high school, so I experienced a few of these days. Then, if you won and had time to linger at a soda shop/restaurant, it was even better. School would soon be out so you could see the end, and if you were a good student, you did not worry very much about your upcoming exams. This is why I will never understand why a kid would not come out for a spring sport–especially when they were successful at it in the past. Of course, there were the other times in May when the temperature was more like March, and you tried to perform in the cold. It is not fun running two miles into a headwind with an air temperature of 50. Hitting a ball with a wooden bat on a day like this was about as much fun as going for your flu shot. As I am writing this, the temperature is 77, the wind is light, and the sun is shining. This is about as good as it gets. Be sure to get outside on a day like this as often as you can.
