Last - YES LAST - Stormy Run/Ready for Half
The weather forecast for my half isn't pretty. It's rainy and low 40s. I don't like rain and cold. I can handle snow and cold no problem. I can handle rain. But rain and cold and nowhere to shower will not be fun. I plan to pack a towel and a bag of comfy clothes to change into as soon as possible. I don't really know what to wear. I am thinking capris although I haven't worn them outside in months. I would wear a long sleeve shirt and a light jacket, probably a headband and light gloves. No matter what I wear it won't work. Thoughts? Suggestions?
Now it's been updated to snow. I hope that's true because then I'll know how to dress but I better take lots of choices!
I'm home because we are having our fourth snow day. Tomorrow is likely to be our fifth. We'll be going late into June now and I have a major trip planned at the end of the month. Oh well, I'll be ready.
My triathlon season will be a little different because of my trip. I won't be biking or swimming for two and a half weeks I am guessing. But I am remembering that when I broke my wrist one summer I managed to get 3 tris in before the season ended. I have signed up for one in September - the Pumpkinman again which I loved last year. I will sign up for more believe me.
I just got in my last short run before the half following our storm. Today was our fifth snow day. In the end I embraced the storm. What else can you do? I love snow storms but let's not push that love snow gods! Yesterday I offered to help my husband fill the wood buckets which I never do because I wanted to go out and play in it. Just now I went for a short run because I truly do love to run in it!
Tomorrow.........off to Maine!
