I had a really great workout this morning in between some heavy showers and with plenty of lightning. Went for an 8 mile run again but my pace has seriously improved since Monday. Leg's are feeling really good with the exception of the right ankle which I still think needs some more recovery time so I'll stay away from the fast stuff until it's good and ready. I met a guy named Jamie on my run this morning. I saw him two mornings this week, once he was riding his bike and he gave me a nice loud "hi!" twice in passing along with a smile and yesterday he was running and he smiled and said hi again. So this morning he was in his front yard in a Texas State Guard uniform taking some pictures so I stopped and had a chat with him. He retired from the Air Force and was heading out to the veteran's graves to pick up the flags they planted for Monday. He just recently started running and h'es running some really good 5Ks considering he just started running. He said his knee used to bother him so he's excited to be able to run pain free. We had a great little chat then I picked it up and finished off the run.

    Running in lightning? Have you lost your marbles? My HR would have been maxed trying to get the run done before I got electrocuted.

    @John, relax. The lightning was far away not directly above. I wouldn't run in lightning or hail. Rain or shine is fine.
