Summer rain

SandiBeach

192 views

Actual temperature = 99*

Heat index = >110*

antsy to get outside and move

105 minutes on the schedule = 20 minute short run just to burn off some energy, be smart, and stay safe

mile 1 = lots of sweat, but happy to be moving (9 minute mile)

mile 2 = one single rain cloud- summer downpour!

splashing through puddles, soaking wet, unconsciously increasing speed = joy and uncontrollable laughter = looking like a grinning crazy lady running

mile 2.25 = perfect rainbow

mile 2.5 = 20 minutes = I don't want to stop, rain ends

21 minutes = sun returns - puddles on blacktop = hot bath water splashing up and running down my legs.

2.64 miles = home, dripping with sweat and rain, soaked to the bone and so thankful for the perfect joy-filled run, even if not the long run on the schedule.

Just what I needed.

Please send that rain cloud north. It’s been brutal.

It was a freaky little cloud...I don't even think it showed up on radar, but it felt amazing! Just hang on until tomorrow!! ❄️ <-- Haha!

Any chance you are running Coombs/Douglass Memorial Sunset Bay Run? I just found this race. It's on Sunday at 6:30. I'm going to run the 5 miler.

Huh, never heard of it before, but looks really nice - dinner and shirt included for a fairly low entry fee! 6:30 is going to be hot, but I've always enjoyed evening races at the shore (did the Cpt. Bill Gallagher Sea Isle 10 miler several times, but can't this Saturday due to a life conflict - It's a really tough, but a simple and nice race mostly on the sand).  It's a difficult time for us to make it home for bedtime, but I'm considering it now.  I'll let you know if I'm going to be there.  Have a great run!!
