A little lucky

I got a little lucky getting all of my miles in this week. In particular my long run on Saturday where after awaking up to thunder all night the skies cleared and I was able to get out the door at 5:30 and into cool moist conditions. During the beginning of the run it was still dark and I only knew that there were heavy clouds over head. As I finished my first loop and was east facing, I could see the clouds parting and the sunrise illuminating the breaks in the clouds, pretty awsome sight to start the day with. About a half hour later there was a dark bank of thunder clouds moving in and thought I might get rain, but as I ended my second loop I was just on the southern edge of the storm and just got a light rain to end my run with, it was great. Later in the day talking with my brother in-law Jared, who live just 10 miles north of me got caught in heavy rain and lightening halfway through his long run and that's when I realized my luck.
