Avoiding the rain...


Well, the picture doesn't quite to it justice, but it's raining outside. Actually, it's pouring now.. cats and dogs really. Luckily for me, I was forced to fit in my run early today and it was nice and cloudy, about 20 degrees. Actually felt much like a spring day, which is actually perfect for runs. I saw that tonnes of other runners were out there. The schedule called for 7 miles so I did 12K (7.5 miles) on my 15K waterfront route, turning back early.

It's calling for rain tomorrow, so it'll be a challenge of when I'm going to fit in the long run.
By the way, the picture above was taken from my window view at work, where I am now in for a 8-hour shift. No, the fences don't mean I work for a jailhouse, I'm a journo at one of Canada's national newspapers, and the fence was put in there when we once had a printing plant attached to our building way back. Now, there's a circus school in that space right below me. I kid you not. Maybe, it's fitting, as journalism is often a trapeze act, balancing between right and left and different points of view -- just witness the Mideast conflict.. sigh, I'm getting back to work, and you all get back to running...

Nice run, isn't great to do it when it is so cool outside? The weather was in the low 20's in Windsor too, I ended up doing 10 miles, by far my fartest distance ever! I did it in 1:55 under 2h which I am realy proud! =) I, now, feel really confident about finishing my 1st half-marathon at a decent time!

Have a good long run tomorrow, hopefully it will still be cool outside!

Happy running
