I was awoken again last night by ferocious wind and torrential rain, so was somewhat nervous about todays run. I opted for the get out and get it done option, Madam chose the delay till later tactic.
Soon in to the run there was evidence of the storm last night with these poor people unable to get out of their drive.
About 1.5 miles in to what was meant to be a 6 mile run the sky looked like this
I knew I was in trouble then. Now I run in snow, rain, through puddles, sleet, hail, wind but I draw the line at thunder. It started to thunder. Time to head home. Then the hail came and boy did it come, blowing horizontally across the road. I tried running close to the hedge to shelter but to no avail. It stung my eyes, my nose, my ears in fact I was getting an exfoliating treatment thanks to mother nature. If I had thought of it at the time I would have run backwards in the hopes the treatment would work on the cellulite on my backside!
3 miles completed and a rainbow when I got home.
Madam ran at lunch time in the sun! Seems I should have delayed.
