Soggy Race

Asi como tu te as ido,Asi como tu me olvidas,Asi como tu la vida,Se vurla de mi, al ver que sin ti, no puedo vivir....

SLAM - I hit the snooze button at 5:30 Saturday morning. (I keep the alarm set to tejano to ensure that I do not continue to snooze through music.) Then I heard the clap of thunder and my room lit up with lightning. What a day for a race.

I figured that I would wait until 7:00 to see what the weather did and, after 'convincing' the dogs to go outside in the rain, then chasing mud dogs into their room, I hit the road for Mission County Park. By the time I arrived, there were blue skies and low pollen counts!

So, the course was soggy, and there were still a few raindrops around, but the Mission 10k was a nice run. The bouncy bridges were even worse, since wet wood is never a good running surface, but I managed to stay upright. It was definitely a nice way to start off Fiesta!

Yep -#488 is scared, very scared!

Post race festivities - with Joan and Carolyn (they didn't run, but you can't tell since they got soaked at set up, while I was still in bed)
Thanks to Tom Lake for the pics (and Carolyn). Thanks to Los Tigres del Norte for the lyrics and waking me up on Saturday.
