The tradition of walking in the rain

Cat on a porch in Menlo ParkIn their days of long runs and even longer hikes (usually accompanied by trusty Australian Shepherd Cassie), rain rarely caused a “rain out.” Equipped with waterproof clothing, the DGs (then the DJs, Dawn Joggers) would head out in all but the most inclement weather. So with rain forecast for throughout the day, the decided on a two and a half mile loop down one side of San Francisquito Creek and up the other, a good leg stretcher that avoided the mud. Among a number of amusements including three wise men on the move, they spied a very pretty kitty, keeping dry on a front porch and perfectly planted among holiday decor.

Side note on the recent jogging: No ill affects on the Achilles tendon but some achy muscles as they wake up to a different kind of workout.
