Yikes!!

  Well we finished out with 4.2 inches of rain!!! It's amazing how quickly the grass has greened up!! I finally got out by 11:00 and the sun and humidity was delightful!? My first two miles were quite brisk but the hills and heat and humidity knocked me down pretty good.
  As I was running along W highway I was forced over onto the edge of the road by a discourteous or oblivious driver and what did I see? A coiled up Copperhead!! Yikes! That'll get your adrenaline pumping!!
  The rain brings out the reptiles! So I am continuing the increase! 77 minutes today with two good miles, 9:19, 9:34...this was a base pace run. I am looking forward to Saturday and track time! Sandy is off the next 5 days so we are going to spend some quality time time together. Peace!

A Copperhead? Yikes is right. I see bull snakes (?) a the park a lot but they just scatter (still scare me though). And it hasn't rained here in eternity and everything is horribly brown. ugh. Glad you got some good rain, but 4.5" is a LOT!
