As I set out the recent heatwave appeared ready to break and I was in two minds as to whether to run. For the first half of the course the wind picked up and leaves and dust were picked and blown up. It was very squally I got dust in my eyes and down my fruit but there was no sign of rain. It was feeling very humid and in need of rain.

However as I turned for home near Sainsburys I started to see lightning forking through the sky and an impressive sight it was. Rumbles of thunder suddenly became much loader and I appeared to be running into a storm . I still half belived I might get all the way around with out any rain but this suddenly changed when I reached Eastgate and the Fox Inn.

The rain simply belted down and in seconds I was soaked through. I could hardly see, as the rain beated down and the roads became rivers and my feet simply squelched through puddles. The pavements were clear and all mine as I ran home soaked through but feeling good after my free shower.

I guess with the thought of lightning in my mind I ran fairly quickly and registered a good time
