Rain was everywhere. On Lindsay Hill, it felt like the current could wash us away. Our shirts were suction cups on any pavement adding a little extra resistance through hydraulics. It was easy to get choked up when doing the count during LBCs. Not the worst we have seen, but it was coming down.
Dressing for the rain was a unique reflection on individual preference. A windbreaker with no hood, a couple had full on hooded parkas, t-shirt, t-shirt and hat….regardless we all got wet pretty quickly. It’s also an individual preference in how people deal with the suck. Let’s just say an overflowing gutter provided a gravity powered bidet for one Pax member. They are nice and clean now.
- Marathon and Half Marathon this weekend. Several Pax are running. Cheer them on.
- Is anyone doing a HDHH this month?
