This morning I almost decided to run later because it started to rain as I left the house, I decided to run anyway because I might not be able to run tonight. Tonight the 5k age graded XC was cancel because of the rain, I was so looking forward to it and was disappointed when I saw the announcement.

I'm so glad I ran this morning, the drizzle of rain felt good against my skin. I didn't see the beaming sun light through the trees today but I ran anyway. I thought of many things when I ran this morning. My mind races all over the place when I run, I believe this is the only time my mind is free, free to dare think aloud.

Tomorrow is a new day, I can hardly wait to lace up again.

It's nice to see you keen to run every day. Strange to cancel a race because of rain??

Keep on running Dawn! Try to play the song: Chariots of Fire by Vangelis while you are running and you'll be even more inspired to conquer the mountains! Keep it up! Goodluck to you! : )

isn't running a blessing? rain or shine, it just gives us so much.
I can't believe that a race would be cancel due to rain. We hold our races no matter what.

Some of my all time favorite runs have been in the rain. It seem almost soothing.

Take care.

It's great to run in the rain; to freeflow thoughts as you run (know what I'm talkin' about, ipod wearers?) and look forward to a planned run the next day.
