I had just started my seventh mile when it started to rain - hard. It cooled me down. I just wished I had worn my hat like I did the last three times I ran. My eyes were bloodshot right after the run. I must have rubbed them too much trying to see the road ahead and watch out for headlights. I ran eight miles today (9:37 ave) with two miles in mostly heavy rain. I liked the rain, but next time, I'll need a hat.
Later I found a good deal at Ross - $23 Nike running pants (down from $65). When the cashier rang them up, she saw the $23 price tag and said, "Too much!" and at the same time, I said, "Good price!" We laughed. I asked if she wanted to lower the price. She laughed again. Oh, well! Still, I don't think she treasures Dri-fit running pants with a zippered pocket large enough for gel and a cell phone in quite the same way that I do!
Bring on the cold weather!
