Rain, Trains, More Rain

I awoke to this. As a testament to how much I hate my trainer, I hoped I would get lucky and the green blob would miss me while riding my bike.

Kevin and Mike also hate their trainers and joined in for the fun.

Three hours later we had only gotten rained on once!

After the ride, it was off to the annual train show. Steven likes trains. I enjoy the layouts. And people watching. As long as I have eaten before we go, everyone has a great time. And no, we don't dress up in conductor outfits. But that would be awesome!!

This caboose was really pretty neat. In about an hour I'm heading out for a run. The radar map looks about how it did at 6am. I've got friends to join me on the run too. Bring on more rain!

I'm hoping that rain doesn't make it over to Scottsdale, AZ and I can ride my bicicleta outside tomorrow :) I am with you on hating the trainer!! YAY for riding and running with friends!

You are a very GOOD wife...and I totally get the fact that you need to be well-fed before you go. So true!

You guys beat the rain! Way to ignore the stupid radar - it's wrong so often. The guy who runs my barn said today...It's going rain. A lot. This is a man of few words so I paid attention.

I will say one good thing about MN over SoCal is riding my bike in the snow/flurries is easier than rain!
Trains are cool!

Oh, so an actual train show. That's cool. I love the little miniature towns and stuff. Get Steven a conductor's hat like the old Casey Jones TV show.

Oh - I LOVE running in the rain!! :) Glad that you guys stayed (mostly) dry on the ride, though !

I heart the trainer...I get to watch movies.

Could you please send some of that rain our way! We are having water restrictions.

It rained here all weekend, and actually warmed us up. Nice little change

Mike Russell said...

At least the rain will clean off the oil from the streets. I am so jealous that you can get out in the rain like that!

What type of jacket is that?

So you hate trainers but you went to a train show ... wouldn't that make you a trainer?
