only REAL runners need appreciate!

It thunderstormed yesterday.  Again.

Just as it started raining I went for a run, looking for the perfect run in the perfect storm.

The paths were fairly dry as I started, then halfway to the turning point it hammered down.

Picture this, running quickly through heavy raindrops, old school Motley Crue blaring through the headphones, thunder crashing closer and closer behind you.

Magic.

People stranded in the storm huddled together under bridges and trees, holding kids, trying to ride it out.  I suggested to embrace it, run in the rain. Soul cleansing, inspirational and motivational - run faster to get a hot shower sooner!

The dry paths were 2 inches deep in water when I ran back through them, with the biggest smile on my face :)

Ha! I get this ... a couple of months ago I headed out for my run with a friend of mine, about 1/2 mile in the rain just started POURING down ... we finished all 4 miles ... and after the run I had to go to the grocery store soaking wet. People were looking at me like I was nuts!!

Sounds like a great run! Running in bad weather always makes me feel like a BAMF. Have you run in the snow? It's awesome to run down a sidewalk, and then run down it again several miles later and have your footprints still be the only set there.

What a neat story. I once went running along the higway when I was visiting Gallup, New Mexico. After 3 miles out I turned back to my hotel and a huge thunderstorm had formed behind me. I had to run into it to get back to my hotel. Sounds like your run was more fun than scarry. Thanks for sharing.
