April Showers

We got a reprieve from the rain today, along with some actual sunshine and humidity.  This morning was the last "long" run before the half-marathon next week.  We did an easy 6-miler (referring to a 6-miler as easy is something I would have wanted to punch someone in the face for saying just a few months ago) and will be putting in minimal miles this week to rest the legs before the big race.

This afternoon I got out on the Surly and rode to Monticello and back.  Took the camera with me to capture some images of the standing water in the fields.  A few of the highlights are posted below.  The full album is posted on flickr here.

And there is more rain in the forecast for the next few days. Flowers are great and all, but I am thinking the farmers are hoping that April showers also bring May days suitable for field work.
