On Saturday at the Greater Louisville Classic, some of my teammates and I were slated to run the JV race while the rest of the team was in North Carolina for Great American. When I arrived at around one o'clock, there was a nice little drizzle going. It was definitely something I could handle. When two o'clock rolled around, the torrential downpour had begun.
