AND IT’S STILL RAINING!
So in case you didn’t figure it out already, I went to the Best Damn Race Expo today. The race is tomorrow.
You probably can’t tell by the pictures but it’s still freakin raining here. It’s been raining pretty much since Wednesday and I’d have to say that I about over it. I already ran a half marathon last Sunday IN THE RAIN. I’m not really looking forward to running in the rain again but I probably don’t have much of a choice.
I’m not so much upset about the weather as I am the shitty job the newscasters do at predicting it, because people please, if you don’t know what the weather is going to be like in 24 or 48 hours fine, just don’t try to predict it because you’re always wrong and it’s annoying. Seriously. I can look outside my window and tell whats going on without your input.
The expo started at noon today and ran through 7pm. I waited until almost 3 to head over because I was hoping the rain would let up.
It did not.
Can you see the Safety Harbor Marina Pier in the background? You may remember it from about 9000 of my photos, Hehe.
I felt bad for the vendors because it was rainy and wet and I hope tomorrow morning goes a bit better for them.
The 10K starts at 6:45 and the half starts at 7:15. The 5K is scheduled for 9am.
Anyhow, I am looking forward to this race, it’s not called the Best Damn Race for nothing. And it’s 5 minutes from my house, booyah! I love Safety Harbor, obviously, but more than that…I get to run by my favorite tree..
It’s so majestic looking up close isn’t it?
And it’s very old. No, really it is. It even tells you that it’s old, see:
Now, I need to get some sleep because tomorrow is going to be so much fun ….. even if it rains!
Are you racing this weekend?
Do you like to race in the rain?
