I went for a run today. I ran 8 miles. I've had this nasty cough now for about 3 weeks and every time I have to stop at a traffic light, I start coughing fairly uncontrollably until I get moving again.and when I realized this morning that the rain was really coming down, practically blowing sideways, I admit, I groaned.
I dressed with my wind and water breaker and headed out. I was drenched within minutes. I had to stop at the stop light and I read a sign at a local church that read "It's hard to be thankful, when you're grumpy!"
After reading the sign, the run became fun. I didn't care that it was raining anymore, it didn't matter that my hands were freezing. I thought it was funny when Barlow Girls song "Hello Sunshine" came on. Cute. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LAVCU0BAHJs
Stopped staring at the sign, I remembered a time when I was a little girl. I absolutely loved to go out in the rain and come back in completely drenched. My parents never mind, well that's my memory of it.
And for the remainder of the run, I was that little girl and once again, running in the rain was fun again.

  1. What a sweet post to share Jeannie. Running in the rain really isn't so bad, is it.
