Holy Hanna

Not this Hannah

This Hanna

I knew if I was going to beat the wicked storm coming to our town today I had to be on the road by 5:30 am. Not rolling out of bed at 5:30 but on the road with shoes on, water belt attached and full of liquid, ipod and Garmin charged, cash in zipped pocket to buy Gatorade on the way (had to cancel debit card last week as someone got the number and was having a hay day in Europe with it - Yea fraud protection!!)
I didn't hear the alarm so my plan was off by 15 minutes.
Hanna came an hour early
So I got to run in the rain for the last 5 miles. That's good!
I was too tired and wet to finish the last three. That's bad
so I only did 10 miles


WHAT? did I just say only 10.
10 miles starting before 6:00 am and running in the wake of a tropical storm.
Who am I kidding that is amazing!

Reminds me of several runs through snowstorms in 10 degree weather this winter. Those runs are the worst -- and the best. Fun pics!
