Mother Nature won out. After 24 hours of straight rain, my running loop is a mud hole. It is cold and windy and I cried Uncle. My running streak is over at 88 days in a row. Started back on May 30th. Officially done on August 25th. One of my favorite movies is Back to the Future and the number 88 plays an integral role:
Marty McFly: Hey, Doc, we better back up. We don't have enough road to get up to 88.
Dr. Emmett Brown: Roads? Where we're going, we don't need roads.
But, unfortunately, I do need roads to run. I needed a runnable road today to get to 89. It didn't happen. So, 88 it shall be.
