Conquiring the rain

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

In the past, if it was cold or icky outside I wouldn't go out unless I had to. When I started training for my 5k I was running in 20 degrees with snow and ice on the ground. Now today was a challenge that I felt proud of. I did my training in 39 degree rain with snow and ice still on the ground. My glasses were drenched and my legs were cold, but I kept on going. When I try to pump myself up I keep saying, "We can do this". That is what I kept telling myself this morning before and during the run. I said feel how accomplished you will feel and how you can tell people you did it! I did it!!!!! My hair, clothes, and glasses are wet, but I'm still moving! I have conquered the rain! Nothing will slow me down now. Nothing! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Great job! The feeling you have during and after a run is indescribable. You won't want to miss that feeling anymore! There's nothing you can't do! :)

    I'm sorry that you aren't having the kind of weather there that we are having here. Everyday this week I've been walking in sunshine and feeling really blessed.
