After the storm I headed towards Horseheads for a run since Elmira was in a state of emergency and 8pm curfew. I headed out on 6.2 mile loop. The plan was a mile warm-up and 2 at marathon goal pace (8:11) and 1 mile at half marathon goal pace (7:45) and 2.2 mile cool down. My times were 8:03 and 8:01 for my MGP and 7:51 for my HGP. It was cool because I saw 14 fire trucks from different areas headed to Elmira. Felt good on the run so it was a success.
Yesterday was a rest day. Today I ran to my in-laws and helped clean up after there tornado damage. My poor mother in-law was home alone when it hit. She saw/heard the tree that fell and hit her house and watched the transformer in front of the house blow. Lots of sparks and fire.
My in-laws live next door to a monastery and their trees crashed down onto my in-laws property. After we cleaned her yard up we moved next door and helped the nuns.
