Hurricane Matthew 2016

Even though this storm didn't hit the SW Florida side of the state, we were still effected. This storm effected almost everyone we know, from the Caribbean to North Carolina. We were lucky that we didn't get hit, while others were not so lucky.
Our house in Palm Coast weathered the storm well, however, the fence didn't. Guess we are getting a new fence!

My cousin's house in Cocoa Beach had minor damage and we helped them get that fixed as well, so all is good. I made a quick trip to her house the day before the storm hit to pick up some personal items just in case her house didn't make it through. 
The reason I am saying this is because my running schedule changed quite a bit this week. Didn't get to run like I was supposed to, and I was really stressed and discovered I don't run well under those conditions. Was supposed to run 13 miles this past Saturday, however, I got 4.5 miles and couldn't focus, was hating every step and decided then I was going to Palm Coast and to Willie's to see the damage for myself and get it secure before something crazy happened. And that is what we did. Ron finished out his run in the neighborhood and I stayed back and got ready, packed the car and off we went. 
Now that all that is over, I can hopefully get back to training.
