-Did not put on my Hat and it was pouring buckets.
-Wore a jacket for winter weather and it was 55 and raining, got to warm so ended up wearing a T-shirt, rain dripping down my arms.
-I wanted to get to know the route to the North, it ended after .7m, so my run was spent looking for more mileage.
-Ran on path near a local business which does not allow smoking on company property, so the smokers go to the trail. These were DEDICATED (lol) smokers out in the rain, about 8 of them with puffs too big to dodge. Pretty sure I inhaled a full cig, COUGH COUGH.
-Nicely dressed woman frowned at me. What was that about??
The run wasn't all fails, I found a path just under a mile that is dirt covered, this is the type of trail I should run on more often for my knees. It will take loops and loops to get in the miles but it is pretty so I guess that is OK, I will let the mud dry up first it was slippery.
The rain was thick. In Washington there are many different ways to describe rain, this was coast-like rain. Misty, wet, like running through continuous wall of water. I was sticky, I kept having to wipe the water from my face and arms...Cant believe I did not wear my hat.
I thought about stopping after 3 miles, I was near my car and I could complete the 2 miles when I got home....I was TEMPTED.. But I continued on, I was already wet, and would have the laundry from this run I didn't want a second set of clothes to wash. What if I did not get the miles in I would be behind? There is a hill about 1 mile out that will be good for hill repeats next week, good to know :)
I passed a man with an umbrella the size of a small tent, it made me laugh inside.. There were a few runners out, all male, they were lucky... They did not have to worry about their makeup washing off and a soggy matted mess of ponytail hair. I looked LOVELY after the run!! Lucky for you I did not have a camera :)
Long Run tomorrow, I am going to bandit the Fleet Feet group...SSHHHH don't tell :)
- Get out there and burn some doughnuts this weekend!!! And FYI if you are in the Seattle Area Top Pot is giving FREE Seahawks Doughnuts to people who come dressed in a Seahawks jersey... SCORE!! Go Hawks!!
