Too much water dooms Waterfall 5K Trail Run

The good news: My hamstring is recovering better than I could’ve hoped.

The bad news: Sunday’s Waterfall 5K Trail Race was canceled due to flooding.

This photo is from the 2011 Waterfall 5K. I can only imagine what the course looks like right now, given that it's at the base of a dam that's been releasing water.

As of Saturday, when another 3 inches fell, June 2015 officially became the wettest month in Fort Wayne history.

Not just the wettest June – that record fell a week or so ago – but the wettest month ever.

It’s disappointing the race didn’t happen, especially after Friday’s test run made me think I wasn’t hurt as bad as initially feared. I doubt I could’ve given the kind of effort I’d been training for, but I could’ve at least participated.

Still, a canceled race is a small thing in a bigger picture that includes failed corn crops with little time left for replanting and flooded basements (or worse) as far as the eye can see.
