in the lightning! In the lightning! In the raaaaain!* (For that to make
sense and/or be funny, you need to be marginally familiar with this awesomely juvenile/NSFW video from my early years of college.) #strife
In all seriousness, though, the
rain didn't really bother me and it was much preferred to the super hot
day we were supposed to get. What did bother me was that the race
started about fifteen/twenty minutes late, that there was no real
"start" line (even though it was supposed to be chip-timed?) and that
the route went through residential neighborhoods where people were
driving around and where any of us could have feasibly gotten hit by a
car. I was not terribly keen on that bit. Closed roads = safer.
Knocked almost 3 minutes off my last 5K but wasn't quite fast enough to
beat my 2014 PR of 44:29. Ah, well. Next time?
Also, ended finishing fourth
from last. Meh.
*The lightning had pretty much stopped by the time the race was supposed to start, but that ruins my joke, so...
