No sunshine here, and since I didn't hear thunder or see lightning, I loaded up the bike and went on a new trail north of my house. This one starts a little farther north from the park I usually start, and heads toward a national wildlife refuge. )I was at the refuge yesterday to run the 4-mile loop, and that's why I was ticked - they didn't groom their trails and it was wet, muddy, grassy and I'm still picking stickers out of my socks.
My shoes are ruined.)
Anyway, nice trail, but it'd be tough to ride in the sunshine because there is absolutely NO shade. Asphalt is a little bumpy in places, and sometimes things move in the cornfield next to you . . . . but otherwise it's a pretty good trail. Got out to the refuge and it started to rain. Then I heard my phone voice mail chirp. Then it started to rain harder, so I started heading back only to find out the wind was going against me. Drat!
Checked my message and it was my husband, "Hope you're inside because a monsoon is heading your way!"
Nope, still a few miles to go, and the last 1/2 mile is uphill. I can see the car, I can see the car . . . . . . . . . . . . DONE!! 13.2 miles and I didn't get too wet.
Now I'm heading up to the college to deliver lineman gloves, then to lunch with hubby, then FINALLY some down time to do nothing but sit and read. :)
Have a super Sunday everyone!
