Where’s the Storm?

A baker’s dozen ignored the weather alerts and were rewarded with a break in the radar. The VSF was planted and off we went.

Start with a short mosey to the other end of the parking lot while we wait for DK, who was coming in hot on two wheels.

  • Counting the seconds between lightning flashes and thunder is an old standby for determining how far away the lightening is from you. With that undeniable scientific equation (and the fact that the radar seemed to be clear until at least 0630), the PAX rolled the dice on staying for the workout. I’m glad we could get the workout in safely.
  • During the KB pre-work, there were rumblings of Jim Cantore showing up to film live in the heart of the storm. Someone said they thought they saw a cow flying by, like the movie Twister.
  • YHC planned the mini field trip if we had a smaller group today. Of course we had to go into stealth mode while running the hill. I don’t think Brown has a stealth mode. Remember, if anyone asks, we are the Raintree Running Club.
  • Even though we stayed stationary for the first 3rd of the workout, we still managed to log 2.9 miles according to Sussudio’s watch. Of course he said 4.5 at first, but then put his glasses on.
  • Splinter was absolutely tearing up the hill.
  • Bluegrass keeps getting stronger. Keep posting, brother.
  • Sound off in the comments if you have any other amusing things to share.
