Crappy Weather

Rain, snow, fog, freezing rain, sleet, wind...I hate this weather. We now have flood warnings all around the area. I'm sure Allerton Park has parts of the trail under water. I doubt I'll run either of the training runs this weekend. McNaughton Park will be very cold (low of 8 degrees Saturday night/Sunday morning) and the creek crossings should be quite swollen. It's probably runnable, but I'm staying home. I can run local trails at Lake of the Woods if I want--why travel for bad conditions? If anyone is traveling from afar to do the Allerton or McNaughton training runs, I'd check with Brian to see if plans have changed. Brian's e-mail and phone are on the SWRC page. My guess is that a couple hardy souls will make both runs.

You're supposed to get tougher as you get older. Leave that wimpy crap for the kids.
