Day 4: Wet!


Have you ever been so wet, you couldn’t be wetter even if you jumped in the river?  Well tonight was one of those nights.

With the torrential downpour in progress, it’s the kind of evening that most sane people would think “I think I’ll give running a miss tonight”, but this wasn’t an option for me.  Firstly I am committed to running 10K-a-day during June and secondly, it was club night and I was one leading training!

You knew it was going to be wet when the side of the road was flooded and you had to stick to the pavement in order not to wade.  Then, when we reached the footpath where we were going to do our efforts, not wading wasn’t an option because in parts the path was completely flooded.   What I have to say though is that the 10 who turned out tonight were real heroes for braving the weather and not complaining in the least.  Quite the contrary, they revelled in the challenge which makes me really proud to be part of such a fantastic running club.

The run was nearly 10K so I ran up and down the street outside the club a few times to eek the distance out to 10K.

“Seven days from now I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights, and I will wipe from the face of the earth every living creature I have made.”  Genesis 7:4 NIV

Richard is running 10K every day during June, to raise money for a public access defibrillator to be situated at Rothwell Baptist Church.  To sponsor him and make a donation, please visit his Just Giving Page.
