6 3 miles easy / no Garmin
I stepped out the door a little before 6AM and thought it looked a little darker than usual. And everything had this yellow hue to it. Odd, but I kept running. Then I noticed some lightening but no thunder. Possible heat lightening? Although it hasn’t been too warm here. I continue my run but I’m a little nervous since it’s starting to get darker and darker. I’ll pretty much run in anything but thunder and lightening are a deal breaker.
Then I start making deals. Just a little bit further and then turn around. That will be 3 miles. You most likely won’t get hit by lightening. What are the chances? Then I start recalculating my weekly mileage in my head, trying to see where I can make up these 3 miles. Ugh, Sunday’s easy run is going to be a long one.
Then the thunder and wind pick up and it begins to rain. I hightail it home to avoid a lengthy blow dry if my hair gets too wet. Mon, Wed, and Thu (the days I go into the office) are shower-and-throw-your-sweaty-hair-in-a-ponytail days.
Have you ever been caught running in a thunderstorm? I did a few years ago and I was about 2 miles from home. It was pretty scary.
Ever rock the sweaty ponytail look? I could trademark it.
