Rained Out Again

Bailed on the 5k this morning. It was storming like you would not believe and the storms woke me up around 2 AM. I didn't get back to sleep real quickly and when I awoke at 6 it was still lightning and thunder like you would not believe so I turned off the alarm and went back to bed. Now I have to decide if a run or cleaning the house takes more priority today. It is supposed to be 85 and thunderstorms all day.

Happy 4th everyone!

Going to sign up for a sprint tri in Michigan on the 16th of July. Need to get in my transition practice before Steelhead! The race is very well attended and they give awesome prizes for first in each leg. Maybe I should just go real easy on the swim and bike and hammer the run? ;) My cousin and my baby sis are going to do it too. Last year I got KT to do it on a whim with no training so it will be her second and my cousins first tri. Should be fun! The after tent rivals any other race I have went too. Plenty of good fluids and food.

Given the choice between house cleaning or running in the storm and a chance of getting struck by lightning...i will take the latter :)

I bailed on my 5 mile race this morning (Bay Days). Eh, we'll make up for it ;)

Have a great 4th!

yeah... clean. and enjoy the rain. our drought is so bad we're on level 3 restrictions. absolutely no hose use. if you want to water the garden, you do so with a watering can. we're shopping around for a rain water tank.

they should give out a prize for the largest participation by a family.

Damn, some how I missed your blog moving. I just thought you hadn't been posting.

Anyway, happy (belated) anniversary. Great photos. Glad to hear you're still fired up about JFK.

The tri sounds like fun. Well, the part where your sister and cousin are doing it too, and the running part. Not so much the swimming and biking part. If you are going to win the run portion, then you'd better skip the cleaning and get your run in!

That sounds like a cool race - especially with your cousin and sis doing it too!! Hope you win a cool prize!
