It rained and rained and rained all day. It rained so heavily for most of the day that I was pretty sure that I'd be getting soaked when I ran this evening and I wondered if I'd have to stick to sidewalks that I knew would be clear of ice. But then, as I looked outside a half hour before I left work to go home, I saw sun! Sun and clear sidewalks! Then I checked the temperature and it was 8 degrees. EIGHT! as in almost ten! I couldn't believe it.
It almost felt like a celebratory run. I was wearing capri pants! Capri pants, no gloves, no hat...and of course, a GIANT smile:
(yes, that blue thing is a foam roller and yes, I wear that red shirt a LOT)
Sorry for the crappy picture. I was too excited to get out and run to worry about picture quality :)
Sure, my feet got a little wet from the puddles and there was an icy patch or two, but there was sun (well, for the first part anyway...then it set) and the sidewalks were clear and my goodness, I was only wearing ONE layer. It was such a far cry from a day such as the layers in a previous post that it almost felt like I was in another place. I'm sure the other people on the path (unless they were runners...because they understood) wondered what the heck I was up to- grinning from ear to ear like that.
So that made MY day and perhaps my week. Has anything made your day recently?
