I managed to commute to work twice this week. Thursday was very iffy due to weather. After listening to thunder storms rolling through all night long I got to work with no problem. All day people were asking me if I would be able to bike home and I thought this was the day I would have to call for a ride as storm after storm rolled through the day also. But after work it appeared to clear and I rode home plus some extra. Just as I was getting off the bike in my yard I told my husband I lucked out and he told me I just made it. As soon as he finished saying that the skies opened and it dumped big time! I got soaked just putting my bike away. Love that I got my commute in in between all that weather!
That morning I had also run but I stayed close to home in case it started to thunder. I did some back and forth but couldn't go as far as I wanted because there was a large tree down across the road. Yikes! The next morning just past this point my husband saw a bear there on his way to work. I do not want to see a bear when I am running or biking.
Last week Jamoosh had a good post about Stories Make the Race. I would change that slightly to Stories Make the Runner and encourage you to go read a recent post by my friend CQL. She is a very inspiring lady who always has nothing but a positive attitude. She is amazing.
