Not sure if I came up with my exact post for today run. I thought about it though. Just no lightening bolt of ingenious.
Speaking of lightening, when I got out to run yesterday I saw some lightening. First let me back up to say that on Tuesdays & Thursdays I always run to and from the Y. I teach a pilates class at 6 so it keeps me in the area & when I am done I am ready to go for my class. So I drove to the Y. Just as I put my van into park I notice a flash out of the corner of my eye. I let out a loud "ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!?!" even though no one was around to hear me. I stepped out of the van to survey said conditions and yep, indeed saw more lightening. It wasn't the big bolt type of lightening so I convinced myself it was ok to head out. By convince I mean I turned into a whiny 3 year old who literally said out loud in a quite annoying tone "but if I don't run, then I'll ruin my perfect week and I won't have time to run later, I'm spending the day at a water park, and then I'll feel fat and I HAVE AN ULTRA in 2 1/2 WEEKS!!!!!" I saw another flash of lightening then decided to head out. (No lectures please. I'm still alive). Once I got running, the lightening was to my back. I felt a heavy presence behind me, but made sure I ran with my mouth open. (I usually do anyway, but I once heard that if struck by lightening the charge needs a place to exit. If it has no place to exit then you will surely die from said incident. Who knows if that is true. Makes sense to me). As I wound my way around Carl Sandburg Dr. I came along side this peculiar weather system that was producing the lightening. It appears the lightening was contained into 1 particular cloud. And it never did have a big bolt effect. Never heard an ounce of thunder. It was interesting to watch the cloud light up and left me a little awe struck at the beauty of nature.
