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.
