Dear Mother Nature,

Weather Forecast - Toronto - Sept. 26-28. rain. boo.

 

Remember me? We’ve talked before. And, uh, maybe I’ve even cursed you on occasion.  Sorry about that, but I hope that you can understand and forgive me, right?

So why am I bothering you today? See, the thing is there’s this race on Sunday that I planned on running.

It’s  kind of a big deal, you know?

See, I would REALLY, REALLY love it if it didn’t rain that day.

This will be the third year in a row that I am running the half and I’d kind of like it if it was sunny that day. Running along the lakeshore with the sun shining off of the water is truly a beautiful thing that everyone registered should experience.

Running next to the lake while it’s pissing rain – yeah, not so much fun. Been there (@ the 10 miler last year), done that, NOT impressed.

Don’t get me wrong, now. Running in the rain is refreshing at times, but I’d like it NOT to be on a day where I’ve paid an entry fee to run.

So if you could upgrade the forecast to at least partly cloudy or something, I think we could come to an understanding.

Sound good?

 

Have your people call my people.

I hope the weather becomes more cooperative for you. Paying for the privilege of running a half-marathon in the rain is not my idea of fair.

Running is hard enough without MN "pissing down rain!" Hope your run is rain-free & you get to enjoy the sunshine bouncing off the lake!

I'll talk to MN for ya! We go way back.

Awww, break my heart and LOL at the same time.

Sounds like you're running the Scotiabank race! I will keep my fingers and toes crossed for good weather.

Good luck for the race Mouse! So far it looks like your people were persuasive - the weather network now says Sunday will be sunny with 'variable cloudiness'... I'll knock on wood...
Hope you have lots of fun running on the waterfront! :)
