Turns out, that's not true. I went out to run this evening, just before 8pm, because the big thunderstorm was coming and I didn't want to get stuck before dark. It had just gotten down to about 85 so it was more tolerable to run in, and it was fairly windy which helped a lot, especially since it's been so humid the last few days. I briefly considered my chances of being hit by lightning. Even being on the road up on a cliff, I figured my chances were still pretty slim--there are trees there, taller than me right? So I headed out.
The storm was pretty cool. Lots of lightning, lots of thunder--NO rain. I could have used a little rain, actually. I felt pretty sluggish with the heat and humidity, but got in 4.5 miles. I stashed a bottle of water about 1 mile into the run, so I had some on the way home.
