We have had many, many days of rain in the Southeast. This weekend, it was WET!
The rain had a huge effect on all of the weekend races….
The 10k my husband had signed up for got cancelled.
The half marathon that my work neighbor ran was postponed for an hour while water on the course receded.
Friends who were running in the Disney World Wine and Dine Half got a 10k instead. (Shortened due to heat and or storms in the area.)
Our nearby greenway, which is an awesome place to run was totally flooded.
And after many of the day’s races had already been run, the course for the Georgia State High School Cross Country meet got altered due to adverse conditions. (First time ever in 22 years at that location).
Despite the rain at the cross country race, we had an awesome time! Our girl didn’t get to run b/c she is still in a boot. Some of our other girl runners were also injured, so our girls didn’t have a spectacular finish. Nevertheless, it was thrilling to watch these young ladies….many of whom we’ve known for most of their lives.
And our boys did great. All predictions had them finishing 5 or 6 but they must be strong mud runners b/c they finished 3rd!!
Here’s hoping for some sun soon!
