4:30am- alarm sounds
5:00am- walk about 1 mile to nadia's apartment. notice 2 new coffee shops. of course, neither are open so i can't make any recommendations. recognize that nobody else in the city is awake. there's a very light & occasional sprinkle.
5:25am- arrive at nadia's & wake her up. oops, she forgot to turn on her alarm clock.
6:10am- arrive at training location. team has already begun the run. it's raining. over the 6 mile course, most of which i walked with andrea & her dog, hank, it continued to rain harder and get windier. we were officially "soaked to the bone" by the time we completed the training. it's been a long time since i've been that wet while fully clothed!
7:30am- sat in wet clothes for a team meeting in an air conditioned room. burrrr.
9:30am- arrived home & quickly jumped into a warm shower. ahhhhh.
things i learned today: i don't like training in the pouring rain. i need to buy a waterproof watch. rain doesn't make me run faster as i would have thought, it makes me walk.
rainy afternoon movie recommendation: once
sunday will be spent at a friend's wedding. hopefully, a rain-free afternoon. (congrats, nadeem & bethany.)
