This morning I woke up around 8am. During the work week, I get up a little after 5am to go for a run. I get up this early for two reasons. First, it is too hot after work to go for a run. Second, after work I never feel like going for a run. So when I woke up later than normal today I was worried that it would already be too hot for an enjoyable run. Then I noticed that it was cloudy. That was a good sign right? Quickly I dressed and went outside. On my way to the reservoir it started to sprinkle. I thought to myself, surely I can get done before it really starts to rain. But if you read my blog earlier this week you know that I am not good at determining when it is about to pour. I started around the reservoir. About a half a mile into it, the rain started to pick up. I was still undeterred. You’ve probably guessed that it really started to rain and I got soaked.
To give you an idea, here is a photo of my shirt.
Yet I am still proud of myself. Getting back into shape is not easy. There are so many reasons not to go for a run. Such as sleeping late, reading a book, watching a movie, bad weather, and well it hurts. On the other hand, there are so many reasons to go on a run. The most important is that I always feel better when I do.
