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.
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.
