Hello there! Living in southern California, I am a fair weather
friend runner. So, when I heard it was supposed to be rainy all weekend I wasn’t sure what to do about my long run. Since it wasn’t that cold (55-ish degrees) I decided to accept the wet and go for it.
Then, I drove to my favorite neighborhood loop. As soon as I got out of the car the rain changed to a drizzle! Thank you Jesus. I was supposed to do 18 miles, but I knew I would have to play it by ear depending on the weather.
It took a full 5 miles to get into a groove. Every single one of those first miles I considered postponing my long run to tomorrow. I was not feeling it. At mile 6 I decided to hang in there for another loop. At some point I decided to cut it to 13 for today and that was a good choice – as soon as I got into my car it started POURING and got super windy.
