I can't believe my luck when it comes to rain. I just checked the weather and it is going to rain on this Sunday. Seriously the last time it rained on Sunday here was the last race I ran. This would be funny if it happened to someone else, Ewen for example. But frankly I'm a little pissed off.

Any advice for running marathons in the rain and/or uplifting stories about you or anyone you know running a PB in the cold drivng rain.

As the clip says "I'm looking for a perfect sky."

By the way this song sung by Bonnie Pink features "Ebi Chan" the lastest teen idol here. "Ebi" is "Prawn" and "Chan" a title for young girls. The prawn reference comes from the fact that she made her debut in a TV commerial for the McDonalds "Ebi Burger."


  1. In a word, beware blisters. Sorry, two words.

    Then there's the palindrome: Now (in a pajama), "Japan, I won!"

  2. The runner in the blue bikini has unfriggenbelievable form Scott. I had to watch Bonnie's clip a number of times to make sure my eyes weren't deceiving me!

    Ummm, now where was I? Oh yes... the weather. I was running in sympathy with you this morning - rain, puddles and strong winds. Great fun!

    My tip if it's windy would be to risk going a little faster than ideal early so you can shelter behind a group - perhaps the 3:10 group. Bandaids on the nipples and Vasso or Bodyglide on the feet and any other places likely to rub.

    幸運 !

  3. Hope prawn girl brought you good weather.

  4. GO SCOTT GO!!!! Run like the wind!
