A Wet Taper and Susan's Butt

Now that is getting cold we are starting to wear our full length running pants, and on one of our recent runs Susan commented that she wanted a pair of pants that weren't flared at the bottom and didn't look like they were from the 80s. I stopped by our employee store to return something and decided to pick her up a pair of running tights. I inner office mailed the tights to her with the note, "I hope these make your butt look as good as that guy on Leif Erickson".

This is our first of 2 taper runs before The North Face Endurance Challenge, we decided to only do 12 miles this weekend since my sister was in town and 15 next weekend. I was sure glad we did the shorter run this weekend, it down poured for at least 4 miles, I haven't been this wet on a run in a very long time, and our rain jackets were pretty much useless. I guess we know the winter rainy running season is here.
