Rain and Rest

YIKES! When it rains it pours. And I mean POURS.

The Saturday training run was a wet and wild affair. I was helping with the 3/2 group and THANK GOODNESS it was a cut-back week and we only had to do 5 miles. This was the hardest rain I've run in since Athens in 2001. I actually ran in rain pants and a Marmot rain jacket. No running gear was going to work.

Sunday was clear and cool - almost cold. Perfect day to rest the weary legs and go explore the backroads of Wisconsin on a motorcycle. We've found a "biker" restaurant - a place with a HUGE parking lot that turns into a motorcycle show on Saturdays and Sundays - to eat and hang out. Great fun.

This is a strange week. Off to Seattle on Wednesday, Anchorage on Thursday, back to Seattle on Saturday, and then off on the cruise on Sunday!

ORN: Saturday, June 10: 5 miles, 3/2 in the POURING rain.

I have actually never run in the rain. I've run in piles of snow, at 2 in the morning, but never in the rain. I would imagine it to be a rather uncomfortable combination of sweating underneath layers of rain gear designed to keep you dry.
P.S. I can't believe you completed the Goofy challenge. You. are. my. hero.
