That's a quarter lying next to the hole, for scale.
So I guess what I've learned from this is that when you are told to take cover in your house - a bathtub in an interior room is usually recommended - and they say to pull a mattress over you? Do that. Projectiles are no joke!
Anyway, I know I got a little off track from my WWU, but this was pretty interesting to me. Besides, do you want to hear how completely awful that run was? I didn't think there was THAT much of a difference between running in 88% humidity and 100% humidity, but hooboy, there is...and it's brutal. I know I'll get a little more acclimated to it, but dang, running is a whole different ballgame in this heat and humidity.
After the run, we went to Blue Baker, where - don't faint - I did not have a cinnamon twist. I KNOW!!! I'm actually trying to not always have (half of) one, especially when I don't run very far.
Yesterday, Jenny and I walked our standard 5K, which was fun - we're getting faster with our walking, but the criteria has to be that we can still talk and walk, because let's face it, that's the best part of getting together...walking therapy, I call it. We went to scary statue park for a change, and true to its nickname, Jenny got startled by one of the statues as we rounded a bend. Here we are with a Civil War soldier:
He's standing near a neat old-style fence that they recently put up. The park keeps evolving with all of the tributes to the soldiers of different wars; there's a lot of info to read near each site, which we actually haven't done because we are always moving. Maybe next time after we finish our 5K, we'll take a leisurely lap around and read some of the information boards.
Today is Global Running Day! I remember six years ago, Jenny and I worked out with Brad (back when I was killing it with the workouts) and then we ran a mile, just to mark the day. Jeff and I plan on running this morning; again, with the heat and humidity it won't be pretty, but if we waited around for perfect running weather, we wouldn't run until November!
