First up, some good news. I’ve been feeling pretty good on my runs lately. Official Chicago Marathon starts in a few weeks, but the pre-training is in full effect. This week’s highlight being a run with WRRC.
Now for some tragic news – I skipped 2 runs last week! Eeek! I couldn’t help it doe. It’s been raining like a mofo around North Texas. I mean big nasty storms, like several times a week, like every week, like for months. Just look at the graph from our water supply source lake…
Don’t get me wrong – all the rain has been great as we’ve been in a massive drought for YEARS! Just look how our lake was only 50% full just a couple months ago. Now it’s over 100%! So unbelievable!
Buuut, the storms have cancelled/postponed a couple races I was signed up for, like one this past weekend…
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not afraid to run in the rain, because as we all know…
But when you’re in the middle of a run and tornado sirens start going off, and then lighting starts cracking over your head, and then the heavens open up, and then the flash flood water is up to your ankles, and then you start laughing at your irresponsible situation…you really start to question your sanity.
“With all of our running and all of our cunning,
If we couldn’t laugh, we would all go insane.” – Jimmy Buffett
So I’ll keep doin what I can – enjoyin the cool rain, appreciatin the resulting greenery, and sqeezin in runs like Charmin.
How bout you? Ever get caught in a bad storm mid-run? Have any races cancelled? Who’s sexy this week?
*OK, maybe it was just a tornado siren.
