On this day I had an amazing run in the rain. A portion with my son and the rest of my 285th 5K with the wonderful sound of pouring rain and lightning thunderstorms. I must admit it seems a little eerie to see only 80 runs left to complete my 1 year goal.
I love the cooling effect on my skin, I love how the sky lights when lightning strikes and then the subsequent booming sound. I even like dodging the water puddles as they form in my path. The only thing that I don’t like about running in the rain, is soaking wet shoes.
I’m missing the 8 and 9 minute miles I used to run. At the same time, I’m just thanking God that my body is resilient. https://www.strava.com/activities/544976433/embed/b4afb0a260b682d8c1938110272715c5edc05a92
