Drip, Drip, Drop!

I thought about running on the treadmill because it was raining, but instead I put on my hat and ran 6 miles outside. There were only twelve runners on the normally crowded park trail, but I have never seen so many smiling runners.

Like a little kid, I ran through small puddles and around big ones. The peaceful and nearly empty path was quiet except for the sound of the rain falling down around me. I had forgotten how nice a run in the rain can be.

  1. Good for you going out in the rain! I swear it's never warm enough here to go out in the rain to run. I'd freeze!

  9. I too ran in the rain this morning in Louisiana. The cable went out taking the TV and the computer, so what's a girl to do???? Go run in the rain. I always enjoy it once I am out there. It's usually nice if it's not raining too hard.
