Marathon cut short for rain

Heh; it wasn’t my marathon. The Regensburg marathon is today. I was only going to do about 30 km, not 26 miles. But along the way the weather started looking foreboding (much earlier than predicted), and glancing down, my rear tire looked a little low.

Blustery April Sunday

It rained A LOT this morning in a small amount of time. But then the forecast changed, predicting no rain until after 5, so I jumped on the chance for a short ride. And I got rained on a little bit anyways. Snaps Route You might need to tap or click the map to make it bigger.
