I thanked God that at least it was just rain...no thunder or lightening. Um yeah...boy does God have a nice sense of humor. Seconds after my "thank you"...I heard a boom. Enter stage left...THUNDER AND LIGHTENING. I kept running and thanked God that it was just a little thunderstorm...no snow??
So I finished out my five miles...dragging at least 20 pounds of wet shoes and clothes with me. Why on earth I decided to wear cotton today still escapes me. Good times! I actually love running in the rain...just a light rain, not so much a heavy rain. I found that the heavy rain really tested my mental toughness--so that's a good thing, right?
All in all...I got my 8:30 mile (I guess I was just SO ready to get back home to my hubby--who greeted me with a warm towel--SO SWEET--my shower and eventually my cup of ice cream)! YAY...so at least now I know how it'll feel to try and run 8:30 in order to qualify for Boston in December--sort of...8:30 for 5 miles vs. 26.2 miles??
