Today was one of those blisteringly hot Charleston summer days that we haven’t seen many of this summer, thank goodness. For that reason, I headed over to the gym to just tough it out on the treadmill. Today reminded me especially why I was getting up early to run all summer!!
After my run, I decided to take the long way (the very long way home) around the battery for a leisurely bike ride. I run the battery all the time but I am usually focused on running and only enjoy the view for brief moments in between. When you live your life like this…
…sometimes you just need to make time to take the long way home.
It was so awesome. I cued up some Jack Johnson pandora radio on my phone and just cruised around loving the view. Until I made it to the market and out of no where it went from blue skies to POURING, FLOODING, MISERABLE rain!
I huddled under an over hang and chatted with my mom until it slowed down enough to make a break for it (about 2 miles). My wonderful plan failed miserably at the end, but at least I didn’t really have anywhere to be so I didn’t have to stress out about it. So much for trying to do a good thing!! Best intentions and all.
Hope you had a good Thursday, almost the holiday weekend!!
