Rain, Rain, Go Away, At Least Until My Run is Done!

Friday, May 02, 2014

So far it has never been raining when I started out on a Galloway Group run on a Saturday morning, usually at 6am. The two times it has rained on my runs, it was just a bit and felt great. But tomorrow we have a 60% chance of thunderstorms at that time. We have been having some real hard storms. Program Director just posted that we'll meet at 6am, but will have a delayed start if there is any lightning in the area.

We have not had devastating weather, like some of the nation. Prayers and thoughts are with those who lost homes to tornadoes and suffered/are suffering from flooding. I'm definitely not complaining. We need rain regularly. Even the bit of hail we had this week was kind of nice for the grandkids to get to experience.

And if I need to, I can always run on the TM. I have one here at home, but it is old and we keep our A/C at 82 degrees. When I can, I like to run in the cool of the YMCA on a really nice, new treadmill. Either way, I will get my miles in. Just hoping for a reprieve from the rain so I can enjoy the scenery and company tomorrow morning!!

    I remember when living in Tampa Bay that this time of year is so unpredictable. I hope you are able to get out with your running group in the morning and the rains hold off until you get that run in. If not you have some great alternative options.
Sending Positive Thoughts and Karma your way! And Sunshine!! No rain...

    Finicky! I feel like I am still dodging winter weather, only it is the rain telling me when to run. Two runs this week ended in light rain. I can manage that, but I did have to take it indoors twice this week too.
