Tourists who visit Florida have this fantasy that our state is about SUNSHINE! And while the brochures are telling the truth, they often neglect to mention that it rains every afternoon.
It has to. Without an afternoon soak to cool us off, Florida would be like a sweat lodge on the Sahara.
Runners have to decide. If you want to run dry, you gotta go in the morning. If you don't mind the downpour, the day is wide open.
This photo was taken out my front door, and although it's in color, it looks black and white, doesn't it?
I know that this week I've been fixated on weather rather than discussions of running. I can't help it. It's that time of year again. And all runners are attuned to "outside." I love the afternoon rain and the beautiful contrasts in a forest that darkens and disappears into mist, and then reappears in flashes of lightning.
I love being a Florida runner ... wet or dry. Okay, mostly I love it DRY. (Notice I took the photo from INSIDE the house! HA!)
