Winter Storm 2008
If you have ever lived anywhere with real weather, you probably wonder how a little rain can make so much news in Sunny California.
Rain began pelting parts of Southern California early today as a fierce winter storm from the Pacific Northwest moved in ahead of schedule, triggering fears that recent wildfires may have left the region susceptible to flash flooding.
With a forecast like that, I felt confident telling my boss I would run the Irvine half marathon with him...just as long as it was not raining. Sadly, there was no rain on Saturday morning, and before I was fully awake, I found myself running a half marathon. For anyone who has been considering running a half marathon: If you are not in shape, a half marathon is not a whole lot easier than running a whole marathon.
I slowed the boss down a little, but we still turned in pretty respectable times.
Next up: Los Angeles (eh?), or the District of Colombia. Do I dare try two in the same month?
