What's up with SoCal RAIN?

It's been raining for two days straight in LA!

I've been forced onto my indoor trainer, unlike the more hardcore amongst us. Ironically, I'll still go outside and run in the rain, though.

Hope the Tour of CA guys can get some better weather!

Never complain about rain! It is always much needed. So much better than forced water rationing, trust me.

I always looks at rain as an opportunity to do some cross-training/weight lifting. Or catch up on housework or movies. It's a good thing!

I had my first "in the rain" flat yesterday. Yuck.

Spring is just around the corner!

I love rain. I can cozy up next to the fireplace, watch a bunch of academy screeners or $5 pirated DVD's over some wine and cheese, and completely forget about cycling.
