Flood Water Run

Since the next impending doom of winter storm was on the horizon, I thought it best to get another outside run in. I went over to Lake Park, which is our local bike/walk trail, which is next to the river. Alot of the path is along the river, and hence, some of it under water.

After awhile, I got bored with running around the water, and opted to go through some of it. Like where these duckies are. I also got 'caught' going through some water up to my knees in another area by some other hospital workers out for a walk in the park. I'm sure that must have amused them, seeing me wade through the water up to my knees. Hey, my feet were already wet!

Hmmmm, might be a good time to train for a triathlon, you don't even need to go to the pool ;-)

Seems like most bike paths are next to water and subsequently always become flooded when the streams are swollen. -Bummer

Have a great weekend!

Ya know, Kim, Jack's on to something there....might need a wetsuit though.


As for that impending Doom Storm that Mother Nature's providing...ugh. We're already at 11.5' of snow this year, and this one's supposed to bring another 15-20".... :(

Get those runs in while you can!

Good job getting out and doing the run anyways. If we don't run every time we have bad weather, we'd miss a lot! Same flooded running trails here, the towpath right beside the river. Ran through it too, but got deeper than I expected Saved time by not having to do ice bath after the run, did it during...HA!

the icy water keeps the swelling down onthe legs from over exertion, right???

nice to be a duck, right??

The water was a wee bit chilly when it got up to my knees!

Well, at least you don't have to worry about shrinkage! Let's not hear you complaining! :) CBFA50K can't wait to worship in the presence of the Goddess once more.

Is there any particular sacrifice the Goddess would wish? LOL - can't wait to be amongst the gang again!
