Soggy AND lily livered…

Distance: 7mi

Miles to go: 1529

Slow slog through a soupy morning today.  Temperature at the start was 71 degrees (at 5:30am) and the humidity was through the roof.

As I type we sit on the cusp of what may be two full days of monsoonal rains as a combination of a potent cold front and the remnants of Gustav decide to park right over central Missouri.  I don’t have a whole lot of faith that I will be biking to work tomorrow OR running at traknight.  As I watch these two monster systems merge, all I can hear is the weather man telling me to expect another 4-6 inches of rain over the next 48 hours.  Looks like it’s back to being soggy again for a few days.

Today was one of those days where I felt like I could have done more (run faster or further)… but I just didn’t WANT to.  I was sweating before we even started and the trail portion of the run felt positively claustrophobic.  For once I was actually GLAD to see the roads again because they allowed in a little breeze.  Luckily, no one I ran with was feeling fast either, so we just cruised.  By the time I got back it felt like I had run through a pool.  Blech…

I think I’m going to sign up for a 5K in a couple of weeks.  It’s a small one and I have really been wanting to do one again so, I have a registration form!  Hope I can muster up the guts to send it in!
