You're not made of sugar, you won't melt

May 11, 2010

I used to sit in my living room watching TV, and wondering why crazy people were outside running in the rain, 90 degree heat, -30 cold, etc. Seriously, was a little run really THAT important?  I was one of those crazy people tonight. 

Apparently, Spring has taken a turn back towards winter here in lovely MN.  It was in the 40s today with cold rain all day.  Well... I'm not going to let a little rain wreck my plans.  Just to prove I still have some sanity left, I will state that it was NOT raining when I left my house.  I walked for 5 minutes to warm up and then started into my first 7 minute run.  Not 30 seconds later, the heaven's burst forth.  Wet.  Cold.  Not fun.  I get through 2 of the 3, 7 minute intervals, and I have 1 more left.  I am 1/2 a block from my house, but I run past and do my last running interval anyways.  At this point I'm soaked so what's the difference! 

Its supposed to rain on Thursday too - just in time for my next run.  I'm scared of fat, I'm scared of gaining weight back, I'm scared of looking stupid on a bike, or of maybe sometimes even actually succeeding, but I am certainly NOT scared of a little rain. 

As mama always said, "You're not made of sugar, you won't melt."
