Is this hot or what?!
What this picture does not portray, is that I was soaking wet from head to toe. My sprint triathalon is next weekend and I needed to get some swim time. I hadn't attempted the freestyle since the sprint triathalon last year so I wanted to make sure I didn't forget how. I've been riding my bike to the gym for a little extra umph in my workouts. The weather didn't look great but it seemed all the storm clouds were north of me. I figured since I was going to be wet from the pool, a little added rain if it happened wasn't a big deal. So I headed to the gym for my 600 yd workout. While in the locker room when I finished, I heard what sounded like very heavy rain and thunder. WTF? Outside, it was a monsoon. Downpour central. It didn't look like it was going to let up, so I just went with it. About a 1/2 mile into my ride, I couldn't see. The rain drops were so big it was messing with my contacts when I would blink. Solution... put on my swim goggles and ride! So I did! Worked perfectly. By the time I got home the rain had quit. Hindsight... maybe I should of waited just 5 minutes longer at the gym.
