What a miserable morning. It was wet and windy. Worse still, the rain was cold! I headed off to Werribee to pick Andrew up anyway. I live about 25 km away from the course, so I was hoping that the weather would be better in town.
I outsmarted myself by bringing Andrew. I would have run if I'd only me to worry about, but I didn't like to drag him around the 8 km course in the wind and the rain. On top of that, we arrived early so that we'd have time to register him. I figured it wouldn't be any harm as he would get to see the 4 km race and he could have a go at the warm up aerobics. Well, being early when it's wet and cold and there's too much wind to stand around under an umbrella is not quite the fun experience I had planned for him. We got out of the car at about 8:30 and decided that breakfast was a much better idea.
We headed off to the Groove Train in Clarendon Street, where we both enjoyed a lovely breakfast. When we were on our way home the weather had clearly improved. I guess if I'd been arriving at my usual time we probably would have run. Oh well. Another time.
I bought myself a new pair of Ryka runners this morning. I noticed yesterday that my shins were starting to get a little sore, which made me realise that I couldn't put off the purchase any longer. It's amazing how good these new runners feel. As a bonus, they were on sale. I had 15 minutes to kill so I wandered into Rebel Sport, where I bought myself a pair of running shorts. I'm looking forward to trying those out during the week.
Congratulations to everyone who braved the weather at SiS today. :-)
