Don’t Rain on My Parade

Camy here, and I have to whine just a little. It’s been raining a lot the past week and of course this is the week I start training for my next marathon.

I mean, God seriously has a warped sense of humor. The weather report said rainy today, but I looked outside this morning and it was sunny. I dressed in shorts and a long sleeved top. I got distracted for about 20 minutes, and it started pouring.

Okay, so I changed to my waterproof running pants and a rainjacket, and I headed out.

I kid you not, barely a minute into my run, the sun came out. And stayed out for my entire one hour run! It was blazing hot! What happened to the rain???

I don’t mind running in the rain as long as I’m not too cold, which is why I have running gloves and a running cap. But I had to stuff those in my jacket pocket halfway through the run because I was seriously overheating.

And before you start into the “hot stuff” jokes, I was so uncomfortable that I had to tie my jacket around my waist, but I hate to do that because it flops around and the zipper whacks me in the elbow. And I was sweating so much in my pants that they were sticking to my butt. Yuck!

And as soon as I came home? IT STARTED RAINING AGAIN!!! AAARGGGHHH!!!!

I cannot win. God is snickering up there somewhere. I think He’s a practical joker like Cheryl Wyatt. This sounds like something she’d do if she were God.

Oh my I had to laugh I know what you mean about the rain and then the heat. its been raining here today on and off. I got wet coming back from visiting mum then headed down the street as it started spitting again thankfully got a ride home and no no sun. The zipper hitting the elbows I dont have that but with my spray jacket it often its my thumbs or fingers on a joint and I know how it can hurt. Are you going in the Honolulu marathon again? about a year ago could have almost guaranteed it wouldn't rain here but then the drought broke!

Sorry, but I'm laughing.
Nope, strike that. I'm not sorry. I really needed that laugh. Thank you.

And would Cheryl really do something like that? She seemed like SUCH an angel on Sunday. LoL.

Enjoy your running--I'm off to walk while the sun shines. Love it! =]

Jenny--well, it's a good thing the drought broke, right? :)

Maryrose--isn't it crazy weather?

Patty--YES Cheryl would TOTALLY do something like that! LOL

Jackie--I heard about that pollen! That sounds horrible!

Sorry for laughing, Camy. I guess it's true, people plan and God laughs. I give you an A for perseverance!
