Sometimes it is fun to run in the rain. Today I ran about 3 miles as I am trying to get back into running after losing consistency over the past few weeks. I was excited, it was fun, just a steady run in a steady rain. I found some puddles and stomped a little harder in them. I ran under some trees and had those larger balls of rain fall on my head and shoulders. These larger drops were colder and I could feel the difference from the rain falling from the clouds. I kept my head up and felt the drops go off my eye lashes and into my eyes. This slight annoyance did not bother me this morning. It was an experience, not life changing, or overly inspirational, but an experience anyways.
If you would have asked me 5 years ago, well maybe even a year ago, to run in the rain I would have said, "No Way!" I don't know what changed, but I have run in the rain a few times over the past couple of years and thoroughly enjoyed all of them. So get out today and do something in the rain, or plan to do something outside the next time it calls for rain.
