And this was the aftermath of biking and running... (i swear i wasn't struck by lightening)

To beat the Florida heat and the forecasted thunderstorms, Scott and I hit the road around 6:30 am this morning. We had a 50 mile out and back ride planned to Pensacola Beach. Despite the ominous weather report, we were optimistic as the sun seemed burst through the morning cloud cover.....Our optimism quickly faded around the 11 mile mark, as the dark thunderheads and distant rain seemed to rush towards us. The beach was definitely a "no go" today... Scott and I simultaneously agreed to head back home. We both knew better than than to try play "storm chaser" with the unpredictable-florida-summer thunderstorms. Luckily we escaped just in time and managed to squeeze in a solid 25 miles on the bike and a post 30 min run.
