Long run in the rain
Skipped the trails today because of all the rain, and a threat of storms. Ran the old St. Charles course with the FF club. Started raining 1/2 mile into the run... not fun. Most of the people turned back before mile 2 because of the lightning. I pressed on, soaking wet already, why not. The rain kept me from checking the watch for pace, but knew I was keeping it very slow. Went out 7 miles and took a quick break at TNT, used the bathroom, and dried off a bit. Then headed back same route. Definitely faster on the way out. Was planning on 16, but just not a lot of fun and getting cold, so stopped just over 15. Pretty tired, but good to get the miles up. 9:20 pace.
