I just mentioned that I didn't lose any days to inclement weather. I did have to cut one walk short, and another close call happened last Friday. I got out ahead of most of the showers that fell that day, but the skies finally opened up for good around 9:40. By that time, I had no potential shortcuts remaining, so the only option left was to put on as much speed as I could and get home quickly - or so I thought. Four-fifths of a mile from the end, my mom drove by, heading back to the house. She asked if I needed a ride... and I turned her down. Up until that point, I had neither seen lightning nor heard thunder. And by that point, I was already soaked, so more rain would essentially have no impact; the only thing that could get worse was if I pulled my phone out of my pocket, and I made sure not to. I was only eleven or twelve minutes from the end, and given the risks, I was more bent on getting my full distance in. An hour later, I asked her about thunder and lightning, and she said there hadn't been any. (If there had been, I would have jumped in the back of that car with a quickness.) I think she said something about thinking I was crazy to keep going. Determined, crazy, call it what you will... but either way, I'm pretty sure I know which side of the family it comes from.
