That was going to be my title for this post as I was planning to run the local Firecracker 5 this morning. The race is usually run on a scorcher of a day. An apt description of how I normally felt after the race was that I was a ” churning urn of burning funk.”
But this morning dawned grey, cloudy, cool and rainy. No need for sunblock. The spectators all had umbrellas and the garden hoses were kept safely tucked away. I ran for a bit with a woman who was visiting from Orlando where there are no hills. I asked how they trained for hills and she said,” We look for overpasses.” You do what you gotta do.
The rain has cleared out and now it’s a bright and somewhat cool sunny day.
Put another one in the books, save the bib and get ready for the next one.
