Headed out for a run this morning before Tumble Time. The sky was looking a bit threatening but it wasn't raining at the start of the run. I decided to run just run Homeplace so as to avoid the no-doubt slippery roots and bog bridges along the Heath Trail. The powerlines were surprisingly dry given all the rain, and my legs felt a bit better than they have for most of the week, so that was an improvement. The rain held off until right around the turn-around, and then the heavens literally opened up. Nothing to do but embrace the soaking and keep on going :-) Got in a good 5 miles.
Flora and fauna notes: Saw a big rabbit (Snowshoe hare? Couldn't quite tell...), resident towhee, a catbird as well as a lot of sparrows singing in the bushes. Wild strawberries were blooming as were the blueberry bushes!
