The dream - We ran 8 miles today - it was glorious!
The reality - we ran 8 miles and it rained on us almost the entire time! Did I say rained - oh I meant POURED! There was a short section when we were about 2 miles from finishing where it stopped raining and I made the mistake of taking off my jacket because I was getting warm, but then of course the sky opened up again and it was too much trouble to get the soaking wet jacket back on over my now soaking wet shirt so I just dealt with it.
My wonderful hubby was waiting at the finish with a skinny vanilla latte - which is big for two reasons - 1. he couldn't run today because we didn't have a sitter so he could have just stayed home in the warm house and 2. he had to go into a coffee shop and order a skinny vanilla latte - a guy who orders coffee - nothing fancy!
And then the kicker for the day - I forgot how quickly you cool down in the rain, so I waited too long to stretch and when I did I overstretched my left leg and now it is sore. I'm sure it will get better quickly, but there is always that nagging voice in my head that says "what if it doesn't - what if it gets worse - what if you can't run next week dummy!" I really need to find a way to shut that voice up! LOL!! I will go back and watch my Friday motivation again...
