It’s a drizzly, cold Arizona day, a rare sight to say the least.
When I saw the weather report earlier in the week forecasting a 90% chance of rain on Saturday, my first thought was “what in the world do you wear for a rainy run?” (And what will it be like in Boston this April?! I have a lot of researching to do…lol)
Thankfully, my friend who works for the National Weather Service assured me that if I got out the door soon enough, I would beat the rain.
He was right.
My run began at 6:30 a.m. and things didn’t look good initially. My iPod died, had to go to the bathroom partway through the run and then I encountered this beauty:
I guess it’s all part of the adventure when you run on canals in Arizona. This train in particular has a regular schedule where I run, but often I’m up and out early enough to beat it. Not so this morning. It was quite the train…
Notice the clouds? They held out right until I got back to my car, once my 8-mile distance run was complete. Pretty happy with the run as I held steady at about a 10-minute mile pace through the run and still made it to all of my appointments for the day.
I’m doing some serious brainstorming now on what I can do to amp up the donations for this run to support Childhelp. If you have any suggestions, feel free to leave a comment.
If you want to donate, all amounts are accepted! Just go to my “Donate” page to get started.
Thanks for your support!!!!
