The hardest and easiest run

I didn't get any sleep the night before my 18 mile long run because my mind and body would not chill out after the annual Stars of Lyric Opera at Millennium Park concert.  The forecast called for cooler temps (low 50s) and drizzle.

Oh no, it was not drizzle.  It was heavy rain paired with some ridiculous wind gusts. This is the start of the downpour at North Avenue beach.

Rain levels were equivalent to these lovely Google images


This continued for nearly 4 hours.  The rain stopped and the sun came out to tease us for about 15 minutes before it began raining again.

Despite us teetering on the edge of insanity and delirium, you know what was the best part of all?  I could have done it all AGAIN.  

Oh yea, bring it on, Mother Nature.
