Caught in the storm

It was suppose to start storming at 4 this afternoon, so I went out to run trails at the park at 2.  I barely got in a half mile and the lightning started getting close.  I took a shortcut back and got a little wet.  I think the distance I ran was 1.4 miles.

Trails in good shape

Despite all the rain late yesterday and more in the area today, the trails at the state park are in good shape.   I met up with the group this evening and ran 2.5 miles.

Memorial Day

For years, we have had the club's Memorial Day 5K/1-Mile at my house, with breakfast afterwards.  Because of COVID-19, we had the race, but runners ran the course on their own between 8 and 10 a.m. this morning.  No awards or breakfast and everyone kept their social distance.  It was suppose to storm this morning, but instead it was overcast and cool.  Surprisingly, we had 30 runners and walkers participate.  I expected 10 to 15.  In any case, I got up early and put out the signs, took photos and recorded everyone's time.  After the race, a friend helped me pick up all the signs, which I took to the storage locker on the way to the park.  I got in 3 miles on the trails - and still no rain.

Stormy day

I went out to the park late this morning and started on my 2.5-mile course on the trails.  When a storm  approached, I cut the run short, remembering several times that I have been caught on the trails in lightning storms.  I ended up running about 1.5 miles.  Rain and storms the rest of the day.

Late morning at the park

Late this morning, I went to the park and ran 2.5 miles on the trails.  After completing the run, I had a nice visit with June Harris, who was visiting the park with friends.  I have known June for many years, super lady and a good runner.  She is the president of the Houston Aread Road Runners Association.

Park every day

I ran 2.5 miles on the trails at the park yesterday, but forgot to post last night.  I went out there this evening to meet up with the group.  Curtis was the only one there and he had already run.  So, he waited while I ran about 1.5 miles on the trails and then we had a koolaid and visited for a while.

Not much sleep last night

I reported to the sleep clinic at 8:30 last night, filled out a bunch of paperwork, got wired up and went to bed at 9.  I think I finally went to sleep about 11:30.  Then, I woke up at 3:20 and never went back to sleep.  However, they said that they got enough data to complete the study.  Hopefully, it will lead to fixing the Afib and I won't have to break my streak with a pacemaker implant.  I was groggy all day today, but Mowed the grass and ran 2.5 miles on the trails at the park this afternoon.

Early post

Normally, I post late at night.  However, I have spend tonight at a clinic to participate in a sleep study, ordered by my doctor.  This morning, I went to the park and ran 3 miles on the trails.

2.5 Habit

With no races coming up soon, I guess my 2.5-mile run on the trails at the state park is becoming my habit run for now.  Back to the park late this morning.

Texas 10 Series Huntsville 5-Miler

The Texas 10 Series Huntsville was scheduled for this Sunday, but was cancelled due to COVID-19.  They offered a virtual option.  This afternoon, I had to go down to the doctor's office in Conroe to get the rest of the stitches out of my wrist, so I drove on down to The Woodlands and ran 5 miles along the waterway.  That will count as my virtual Texas 10 Series Huntsville 5-mile race.  At least, I did not have to run up and down all the steep hills in Huntsville.  I ran partly in the rain and finished in a slow 1:20:48.
