Saturday was so hot and dry that I thought it might not rain again until September. Now it has rained for 30 hours straight, and I wonder if we're going to have a Seattle summer.
The kids and I went to the library - a good rainy day activity. The library air conditioner must have been expecting a hot summer day, because it was refrigerator cold in there. That was when I thought about running. It was nice and cool outside - a rare opportunity for a comfortable summer run. All I needed was a 30 minute window with no rain. One time in the afternoon I got as far as block from the house before the rain started up again.
I kept yesterday's promise for an earlier dinner. When I called for everyone to wash hands at 7:00, no one believed me! Finally about 10:15 there was a break in the rain. The radar showed more showers coming, so I announced I was going for a quick run. My husband said, "Are you sure that's a good idea? Is it safe to run alone at this time of night?" With those two questions he was really saying "I'm concerned about your safety" and "I love you." I was disappointed to miss the run, but I'll be content with sit ups and shoulder shrugs.
