Relief!

After the rain began yesterday at 1, it still hasn’t stopped.  Which means Charleston is a flooded disaster.  HOWEVER, I couldn’t care less because it is about 68 degrees outside and feeling fantastic.

I woke up this morning to cool weather and the absolute un-deterable desire to make pumpkin pancakes.  They were amazing, and there are left overs so I can’t wait to have them tomorrow for breakfast too!

After basking in the afterglow of that concoction I read my book for a bit, studied for comps and waited for the rain to stop so I could finally get my tempo run in from yesterday.  By 1:00 I figured it wasn’t ever going to stop, so I better just run in it.

I knew it was going to be a good one from the first steps,  I COULD BREATHE!!  It is incredible how much of a difference that can really make.  The rain of course picked up and I could hardly see through it when I was hitting the peak of my run for a few minutes but I couldn’t care in the least, I felt incredible.  With about 5 minutes left, a car drove by and hit me with a wall of water making me feel like Carrie, but I was already 100% soaked through so it didn’t matter.

You know this one girls!

Post run, SOAKED!

After getting home, taking a shower and having some lunch, Casey and his friends were in desperate need of some chocolate chip cookies.  Of course I whipped up some of those and am now trying to exert some self control!

Done and done

A good rainy day really does the soul good and with a good run on top of it, this day couldn’t have gotten much better!

When it is pouring rain, do you brave the conditions or head for the treadmill (or make it up tomorrow)?
