Theo's and Mimi's Corner

An adventurous nineteen runners headed out into the afternoon rain, running to the tunnel at Steep Rock Preserve this afternoon. Both runners and Mimi, thought we were crazy; however, they pushed through their uncertainty and embraced the wet run. We started as a group at the riding ring, with our usual warm-up and dynamic stretching, before runners headed off at their own paces. It was a mile and a half run to the tunnel on the flat trail, once the old railroad bed. Nearly all the runners ran the entire way to the tunnel, which meant running back, completing three full miles. Even as we approach May, the tunnel still had slabs of ice inside and runners enjoyed the darkness and echos. Although it was a wet run, it was scenic along the river. Overall eveyone enjoyed themselves and were glad to take on the challenge of both the distance and the weather. Mimi, Nora and I were very proud of all the runners' accomplishments today and their impressively positve attitudes regardless of what we throw at them.
