  1. I am not a fan of running in the rain. Way to go for sticking it out....and it always works that way, as soon as you are done, it's over!

  4. Maybe you should come visit Texas, we really need some rain down here and it appears you might have a gift.

    Good job sticking it out - I'm sure I would have quit at or before rain sloshing in my shoes.

  5. Nice work! I love the "purposely run through big puddles." I ALWAYS do that once my feet are soaked. Why the h*ll is that. My mom must not have let me play in puddles when I was little.

  6. You are my running inspiration, I would have stopped somewhere in between the drizzle, the heavy rain and cars splashing puddle son me.

  10. Funny how these are the runs we remember most. Nice job getting outside in the wet stuff. I bet you felt much better afterward, compared to not running at all.

  12. That sucks. I've definitely gotten to the "purposely run through big puddles" point where there's no longer any point in trying to avoid them and then your shoes get to the point where they weigh about ten pounds each.

  15. I'd rather be doing those 10 miles threw snow!! Then again, nothing surprises me in WI, we just might be doing miles in the snow! LOL....fingers crossed it's a nice day for us!

  16. You should have stopped at drizzle.
    But it's been proven that heavy rain does wonders for eye bags.

  17. Hahaha! This made me laugh out loud. Nice job on the rainy run!

  19. Oh props to you for getting out and running in the rain. I keep rescheduling my runs so that I can do them when it's not raining!

  20. You are brave... I resorted to the treadmill on Friday until I got to bored and then ventured out. But that was just three miles and it only drizzled at that point.

    Great job getting it done!! :-)
