Half-marathon training - Week 2
Week 2 of half-marathon training was almost cut to naught with the visit of Hurricane Sandy. We were in a tropical storm warning with winds going over 40 mph. This prompted the school board to cancel schools last Friday much to our delight. I was able to run my Tuesday short run but skipped Thursday's. It was rainy and windy that evening. So, when our neighbor's lawn guys woke me up at 7:30 the next day, I decided to go for a run. I thought, nah, those clouds are not going to fall anytime soon! Well, it did. The rain came with a vengeance, and sideways. In a matter of seconds I was soaked to my socks! I had to take off my glasses because I couldn't see and when I took them off I couldn't open my eyes! Some would call it dedication; I say, foolishness; to think that I could outrun the clouds!!!
