1. I just completed a 6 km (3.7mi) run in the rain. I always think it's going to suck running in the rain, but it's usually very pleasant. This time, I headed out, ran about 100 metres, turned around and came back for a jacket. Then after about 1 km, I was too hot, so I tied it around my waist. One of these days, I'll get better at dressing for the temperature and trust myself even when I'm a bit cool at the start.
2. Speaking of the weather, my first triathlon is now 9 days away, and I'm starting to check the long term forecast. Really, it's a little obsessive and a lot silly. 9 days is way too far away to trust any forecast. I'm hoping for a nice rain free, warm, but not too warm day. Anybody have some pull with Mother Nature?
3. Speaking of my first triathlon, I won't be the first triathlete in my family. Spud is also doing a triathlon that day, and his heat is about 2.5 hours before mine. Before anyone thinks I'm pushing my kid too much, let me just say that he loves it and is super excited. For his age group (under 8, though he's only 4), he'll be doing a 25 metre (with life jacket) swim, 800 metre (with training wheels) ride, and 250 metre run.
