FOR THE FIRST TEN MINUTES.
What followed for the remainder of my 10+ miles was a series of off-and-on rain showers that went from nonexistent to arguably pouring, and in the latter moments I couldn't help but think to myself: when have I felt like I was running in a shower before? Oh, right! The Wine & Dine Half Marathon! And so from then on I could do nothing to dissuade my brain from presenting me with a series of decidedly damp W&D flashbacks, my favorite being when the combination of the dark and a particularly black puddle caused me to completely lose track of the ground.
Congratulations, Wine & Dine Half Marathon 2014 - you've officially scarred me for life. But don't think that means you've beaten me! I'm coming for you again this year and you better show me something better. And even if you don't, you DEFINITELY haven't won. To combat your influence, here's a picture of happy post-race times. YOU'LL NEVER TAKE ME ALIVE.
