Holy Hanna

Not this Hannah

This Hanna

I knew if I was going to beat the wicked storm coming to our town today I had to be on the road by 5:30 am. Not rolling out of bed at 5:30 but on the road with shoes on, water belt attached and full of liquid, ipod and Garmin charged, cash in zipped pocket to buy Gatorade on the way (had to cancel debit card last week as someone got the number and was having a hay day in Europe with it - Yea fraud protection!!)
I didn't hear the alarm so my plan was off by 15 minutes.
Hanna came an hour early
So I got to run in the rain for the last 5 miles. That's good!
I was too tired and wet to finish the last three. That's bad
so I only did 10 miles


WHAT? did I just say only 10.
10 miles starting before 6:00 am and running in the wake of a tropical storm.
Who am I kidding that is amazing!

Go Kristi go! I love running in the rain but rarely get to- congrats on still heading out, even though you were off schedule!

Yea for you!!! Running ten miles is something I cannot even imagine. Hope you have a great day and that the rain does not dampen your spirits.

You rock Kristi! Way to go running in the rain. I always stay in bed for that. Bunker down the hatches and get ready for the storm. We love you guys!

Kristi, amazing job. It does make me feel lazy and silly, but running in the rain--I am like the wicked witch, I would melt!! Good for you! What a great role model you are for your children.

Kristen said...

Man, I'm impressed! I can't imagine ever running 10 miles! Maybe some day:)

Elizabeth said...

That is amazing, I have never ran that much all together.

Way to go Kristi, that's some serious dedication! Running in the rain is great though, you must have felt like your own personal NIKE commercial.

Good for you. I will share my baby running...I ran a 5K this morning, all running, no walking. I am slow, 32 minutes and change at the 3 mile mark, but I wasn't last! I aspire to your running greatness!

Famous last words...I ONLY ran 10 miles. Way to go, and in the rain no less.

Hanna has made her way up and it's been pouring here for several hours...but we needed the rain!
