I went to the park this morning to get in a 5 mile run. I wasn't happy about it. The weather is gorgeous. The sun is shining. But I'd rather be home with my windows open jamming to my radio. But I sucked it up and went anyway.
The parking lot is usually full with the cars of walkers, runners, bikers, and nature enthusiasts....and of course the transvestite freak that I cross paths with every now and then. But not today. The parking lot is empty save for the lone white Eyes & Ears car.
Hmmm...I wonder where everyone is today?
Walked down to the path....I stretched....not a sole passed by on the path. Strange. Ran .15 miles (my trusty Garmin told me so) in one direction and encountered a rather large fallen tree blocking the path. Oh man! Turned around to run in the other direction and made it .25 miles more before I found the path submerged in a lake from the 6 inches of rain that Mother Nature punished us with over the weekend.
I WALKED back to my car.
Running plan was officially aborted.
Someone upstairs didn't want me running today....
And I'm OK with that!
