Wet.

Lovely weather for a trail run Sunday ... 
Puddles and storms didn't keep me home! ;)


Please excuse the blurry shot of the Lake Marie trail. I didn't have time to focus the camera before it got soaked. 

I think they built that handrail just for people like me who might slip off the edge into the lake. :)

Recent workouts: 
-Saturday  7.5 mi road run, EZ heart rate
-Sunday 5.7 mile bark/water trail run, EZ heart rate
-Monday  1 hour bike indoor
-Tuesday am >6 mile road run. Not sure of distance.  I think i turned off my garmin when I pulled my armwarmers off and didn't notice for a bit. Grr. pm 3 mile trail/grass run
-stretching each day+ PT exercises


#GRATEFUL to be able to run! And for so many other things.... ♥

  4. The PNW has had some crazy rain lately! I always have a tough time mentally transitioning from the dry warm summer to the rainy fall. But I'm glad it's at least fairly warm rain!

    1. I agree with you there! This was about 57F, MUCH better than that 35F stuff we get in January and February. O_o.

  7. What a beautiful trail! But I definitely would have stuck to the roads on such a wet day! I know, I'm a wimp--but at least I don't just stay home in the rain I guess, right?
