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.
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 :)
