This morning's adventure ...

There's been quite a bit of rain here at the moment in Qld.   If you live in Qld you may have noticed this .. If you haven't noticed well might I suggest you take a look outside!

Last night the rain was so heavy that it woke me up ( this is quite the effort I can assure you ).  When I woke up this morning I really didn't expect to be able to head out for the scheduled run. 

The sun was trying to poke through the clouds this morning so we decided that we might just head out and see what happened.

There was a lot of water on the track that we had to detour around. The creek was certainly up high and flowing fast.
When we got into the bush the trail looked pretty good with only a few puddles here and there .. Until we made it further along ...



Little streams were running down the trails .. Lovely really.

Then there was the creek crossing ...



I must say this only slowed my running partner and I down, Baxter wondered what all the fuss was about as he wandered through stopping for a quick drink on the way!
Then the rain started .. There was the fearful thought that it would be as heavy as it was last night but it was just a sprinkle ( breathe sigh of relief ).


The rest of the run home was rather uneventful until we came to the bridge across the creek. I had to be home in 5 minutes for Mr FitMum to get Miss 10 to swim squad training. We were running out of time and were stranded.

This is the bridge we had to cross ...




And this is the second fastest way home ...



A quick call to the support crew ( Mr FitMum ) to advise current situation then shoes and socks off for the crossing ( the water was ankle deep ).  I'm no princess, but I'm not going to ruin my shoes for this little bit of water!  No point in putting them back on as there was more ankle deep water over the track just a few steps away.

Baxter was loving it ...



We had such a great run this morning .. Quite the adventure! Even Baxter had a great time, he needs a bath and a brush now though ...

Definitely an adventure! Well done for going out in it. I've travelled to my childhood hometown to visit my mum and the road back to Brissy may be cut off!

Oh well....
