Raincheck on Running

I am stranded inside as Hurricane Sandy pounds the Virginia Coast. Rain is coming in hard and wind is blowing around 35 mph with gusts near 50. We are not geting the worst of it, but we are getting heavy rain.

The only exercise I have done since Saturday was a brief beach walk down to snap these photos. It seems I will be taking a rincheck from running.

Today it doesn’t seem like I will be venturing out so I put out a make shift rain gauge on the deck.

First shot empty at noon.

It’s none stop in Virginia Beach.

  1. The hurricane weather is terrible! I refused to leave my apartment (just outside of DC on the VA side) in this mess … but luckily I live on the 12th floor of my building, so I talked myself into running stairs for a while earlier today so I don’t feel like I completely took the day off of exercise πŸ˜‰
