Ended up getting dumped on pretty bad. Got up early and out the door right about 5:00. Ran to Longleaf to run with the
Striders for their 5:30 run. It was just a very light rain by the time I got there, I was optimistic that it would stop. Very few people had shown up as it was starting to rain heavily in other areas.
I ran with Jackie for about 6 miles
(fortunately she went easy on me, she's way faster than I am), then headed back. The worst of the rain seemed to have past by the time we were back at Longleaf. She offered me a ride back to my house but I said I was ok. Shoes were already as heavy as they could get and the rain was no longer that bad.
Headed back to my house and once near home took the long way
around the neighborhood but came up a little bit short of 12, decided I
was starting to push my luck with the approaching lightning, so decided eleven and a half was pretty close.
Average pace: 8:04
