The alarm buzzed me awake out of my slumber at 4:15am. While standing in the kitchen drinking water, I heard something and took a look outside. A storm started...wind slashed at the trees, rain poured and the sky cracked with lightening. In Arizona our summer storms are usually at night. Having a storm like this in the morning is unusual. I woke up John to tell him it was raining to see if he still wanted to go. We were supposed to meet a friend at 5am who was already out there running his 22 miles. I was ready and dressed to go out and fair the storm, although the lightening does scare me. He talked me into not running and we climbed back into bed and slept until 8am. Dang, that's late.
Feeling guilty about missing a long run, I did go out for an easy 4 miler, junk miles basically but it does burn calories and offsets my glass of wine from last night.
