It was about 50°F Wednesday night and raining pretty hard. I wanted to get out for a run right when I got home, before it got much worse, but it wasn’t in the cards. Instead, I headed out in the dark around 7:30. Cold, dark, and soaking wet, outside wasn’t really inviting, but for some reason I just needed to go run and blow off the stress of the week.
A lot of people take one look outside when it is rainy and say, “Screw that, that is totally not worth going out into, even with the proper coat and umbrella.” Nothing sucks more than when you get to your destination soggy and grumpy, with your shirt sticking close to your unflattering body.
