On Running in the Rain

I used to like running in the rain. The swollen drops splashing off the brim of my cap, the trickling coolness of water down onto my legs, and the swish squish noise of my feet (not to mention the attractive curl rainwater gives to my hair), BUT after today, I never want to run in the rain again (not even a mist).  I just finished running the LA marathon in a complete and utter downpour. The rain did not let up once. So as I shower, I will be grateful the water is heated and coming from pipes that have an off switch.

  1. Oh, that must have been rough! I've never done a full, but I've done a 1/2 with intermittent rain and it was brutal. I can't believe that I haven't found your blog before this. :-)
