Rain Run

Pepper and I ran an easy 3.6 in the rain this morning.  I have worried about running in the rain and getting blisters.  No blisters today.  Feet feel good.  As you may be able to tell from my "weekness log," I've been "tapering" to get ready for the upcoming "No Frills, Just Hills" in a week and a half.  I'll run a many more times before the race.  I was considering the Tallmadge 5k on Monday, May 31, but nixed it, so the FA will be my race for May.

I'm planning on a 5-bean soup with sausage for post race re-fueling.  Standard bean and rice tortillas, cornbread and chia fresca during the race.  I'm slow, so I shouldn't offend too many runners.


  1. The rain has scared me away from barefooting in the last week. Good luck at the No Frill, Just Hills. FYI, the Tallmadge 5K is that Monday, not Sunday.

    Where do you get chia seeds around here?

  2. I'm way off with my dates. The No Frills is not this upcoming weekend, but next. You Should tune up for the Tally 5k with the No Frills. It's open to everyone.

    I got my Chia on line from Selina Naturally, www.celticseasalt.com They had the best price. I got a 5lb bag and it goes a long way.

  3. running in rain is a bit difficult than good weather...but is much fun because it is a challenge....
