Wyoming Soccer Tournament Day 1: Miserable soggyness

Today was miserable. I shot seven different teams at the Wyoming high school soccer tournament in what seemed like a monsoon. It rained the entire day. The entire day. I’ve never been so soaked in my life. I dressed in layers of what is said to be “rainproof” clothing, but after a few hours, even rainproof clothing gets saturated. I had an hour break in the middle of the day, and I ran back to our hotel to change into dry clothes. Upon returning to the games, I was soaked again in about 30 minutes. I’m planning a Wal Mart run this evening to ensure this doesn’t happen again tomorrow.
