I woke up that morning to a complete downpour. Bummed, I knew there wouldn't be anyone at the event. Who runs in this? It was cold, VERY rainy, and the sky seemed to mock anyone who would even consider leaving their cozy homes.
Who runs in these conditions? These SERIOUS runners do! Boo-ya! They came! Some in ponchos, a few in garbage bags, but most with smiles.
I was so excited to see my logo on the banner of sponsors! Maybe I should ask them if I can keep the banner? Wonder what the hubs would think hanging this in the garage...
A HUGE shout out goes to my trusty umbrella holders! These two fine athletes chased me around, squatted as I squatted, and stopped at nothing all morning to protect my prized gear from the rain. Gold stars to you both!
Lastly, I thought I needed to include this trusty YMCA volunteer. Doesn't this picture make you want a fish stick? Trust the Gorton's fisherman!
Want to be a runner? I never was until a few years ago when I started the couch-to-5k. One of the best things I have ever done for myself! If I can do it, no doubt, you can do it! Now hit the ground running, friends!
