I never have time to run during or after the work day but today I made an exception for the rain. I was out the door AT 5 pm and gave myself 20 minutes to run out & back along Seattle's waterfront so that I could get home in time to relieve the nanny. I figured 20 minutes is better than nothing, right?
Yeah, it's blurry - but look at the delightful puddles!!
My body was really jerky - discombobulated - during the run since it was my first time in over a week. The gears needed a long slow warmup but I didn't have time. My goal was 2 miles and I made it 2.13 miles in 18 minutes. Not bad.
Tomorrow I have a track workout on the books. I hope it's NOT raining for that so I can avoid slippery turns. Can't wait!
In the meantime, finally downloaded a few more photos from my phone that I took in VT during the MCM Mama Goes Masters Virtual 4.0 Mile race that took place the day after a big wind storm. Look closely...that's a TREE going through that roof.
And, the post-race festivities included some local beverages (of all the VT beers we had, I liked the Wolaver's the best) and...
dairy treats made in a 100+ year old cheese shop.
Spoils of Vermont!
