I finally got my run in the rain! Considering the bright sunshine at around 11am that gave way to torrential downpours at 12.45pm, I was thinking to call this post "switch and bait", but that doesn't really describe things.
Upon emerging from the sports complex I found light rain. Good! Better than bright sun. And the drops got bigger. And more frequent. And soon enough it was a serious tropical storm:
Instant puddles ~2mins since the rain started. This is the view across the same bridge as last Thursday's post.
I changed my planned route to something semi-paved since the trails would have become muddy messes:
Good fun, but not ideal in my road shoes. Also: I've got three feet!
Pity the rain didn't last for long, but in it's wake, beautiful clear vistas:
Clear scenes down to Po Lam;.
I ran along the valley floor and at my normal uphill slog decided to run a little further and take "the hard" way.
At the mid-hill round-a-bout I took my normal back roads and jungle path route, finishing what was a quite relaxed, enjoyable run.
"There's no such thing as bad weather, just soft people"
See you on the trails!
