With 4 miserable months of constant rain in CA, I'm very sensitive to wet weather right now. The last couple of days of heavy rain left me no option but to indulge in a slop-fest of mud bogging today. A "character building" run for sure. At one point my mood was so sour that I just sat down on a rock, emptied my 5lbs mud covered shoes of pebbles and then simply sat there until I calmed down. The last 5 miles or so were better because I knew I'd be done soon and the sun was starting to peek out here and there. I picked up Pippit and we did a cool down walk (the rain and residual conditions don't seem to bother him much).
17 miles in 2:35.
Congratulations to Scott Jaime for winning Zane Grey 50 Miler today! The man was sick all last week and still pulled out the win.
