Tuesday night, a huge storm rolled in over my neighborhood. Usually here in AZ, we get very spotty “rain” (more likes sprinkles)- it will rain for a few minutes and then dry up completely. This was not the case Tuesday night! It rained, and it rained hard. AND the rain was pretty steady throughout the evening.
When I awoke yesterday morning, it was raining again! I was super excited and decided to head out for a run. This was my first run around my neighborhood all summer, and it was tough but awesome! The on and off sprinkling meant that I was drenched in sweat the entire time, but it was totally worth it.
Out on that run, I realized how “out of running shape” my body is. My cardio was fine for the most part, but my legs were dying! My friend and I are hoping to run a half marathon this December, and I was joking to Ben that I’m going to have to train just to get in shape enough to start training for the half! Ha! Oh well- it made me appreciate running that much more. In the end I completed two sweaty miles.
I honestly couldn’t care less about my pace. I was just happy to get out and run again. I told you running wasn’t out of my life! 😉
Do you enjoy running in the rain?
