It was a short one, a tune up run actually, 3.5km or so, but my neighborhood being a hilly area the workout was still punishing if you ran fast enough. I just needed to run. Yesterday was so sunny the sun was glaring and I was hoping today would be the same but to my dismay it started to rain horribly hard just as the clock hits 5pm.
I arrived home at 630pm, changed into my running attire and waited. It was harder than a drizzle and I would look just crazy for running. 15 minutes after, it let up a little but not a weather one might stroll in. What the heck, I thought. I've swum in the rain before, cycled in the rain before, so why not run? My boyfriend was also a pushing factor - I told him my running plan was dampened and he was like, "it's just the rain!"
It was a good run, grey sky, sparkling wet road, glistening trees and the kind of fresh scent you get after a heavy downpour.
