The storm warnings started in the afternoon and I tried to ignore them. I had a fun run planned, dang it!
We arrived and the sky looked okay...
I wanted cute Glow pictures, I tried all night without much luck...
Too early to glow, so I had a beer and ran a mile around the field while DJ Automatic played.
Honey ate a pulled pork sandwich and Mountain Dew...clearly this was all about fun
The sky was looking good about 40 minutes before the start. The event was at a race track, so there was lots of open space.
Then the sky opened up...huge pelting drops about 15 minutes before start time. I tried to be optimistic and think the storm had missed us.
and kept trying to capture a fun Glow picture...¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I ♡ the one of my Honey
Bouncing up and down to the music...ready to roll, a 9 p.m. start time...and about a mile in the wind kicked and booom...lightning like crazy. We ended in huge puddles, the rain was coming so fast it was ankle deep in some spots. We made it 2.5 miles, took a short cut back to the car, and called it a night.
Honey put our shoes out to dry the next day - I think they survived...However, my son's car did not fair so well, the storm was actually worse at home, and down came the neighbors tree on his car...sigh...
Have you run a Black Light Run? Do you have any fun runs on your calendar? ...the Color run, the Glow run, Black Light Run, lots of options now :)
