I'm cutting the miles a bit this week after 3 straight weeks of 50+ to give my body a breather.  Ran 5 in the early morning then later did 30 min XT + core at the gym.

Eight miles in the early morning. A bit breezier than I cared for the first few miles left me feeling worn out by the end.

Quite the eventful long-run-that-almost-didn't-happen this morning!  Met up with smaller group than usual at 5am.  

Lots of lightning flashing and lighting up the sky.  Started out with Kim, Doug, Janae, Kellie and Meghan.  Just over a mile into the run and we find ourselves in a massive downpour with lightning flashing and thunder crashing all around us. Crazy stuff!

Started having discussions whether we should bag the long run and do it on Monday. But decided to give the run a chance for a little longer before packing it in. The heavy ran, thunder & lightning lasted for about an hour before things settled down.  

Tough to run in mega-soggy clothes and shoes but once your soaked from head to toe it can't really get any worse. And since most of us had run full marathons in similar conditions we hung in there and were later rewarded with a nice morning and even some sunshine for a while.  The worst part was the dang chaffing due to the extra wet clothing as my bloody-nipple stain on my shirt can attest.  

Finally finished things up around 8:30, still very wet but very happy to have another 20-miler in the books!
