I was so excited about my run this morning. The weather was a nice 65 degrees, and slightly overcast. When I checked my Weather.com app I saw that there was a 60% chance of showers. Upon further inspection of the weather map, I didn’t see any rain moving my way, so I headed out for a five-run. My run started out great. My legs felt fresh which was surprising since, for the past two weeks, I have been doing two workouts a day five days a week. I was flying, at an 8:45/mile pace!
Can you believe 2.5 miles into the run it starts to down pour. I’m not talking about sprinkles or drizzle. I’m talking about having to take my iPhone out of my armband and tuck it into my sports bar type of downpour. 😦 Boy, I wish I someone was recording that! I was freaking sprinting, which made the ran whip my face even harder. I would have stopped, but there was nowhere to stop. No corner store, no shelter, only houses that sit off the road down long driveways. So… I kept running. I had a few cars honk their horns. Probably because of the phone in my bra that kept bouncing up and down. smh
All in all it was a great run, and the beginning of a beautiful Thursday for me. From now on, I will make sure I actually take heed of the forecast.
What’s your worse weather experience, have you been even been caught outside in a rain or snow storm?
PS. I was going to wash my hair today anyway 🙂
