running

Running in a thunderstorm | 44.05 (6.8 km)

I'm a strange girl, but I quite enjoy running in the rain, which is just as well, because I just got soaked to the skin.

When I left on my run, it wasn't raining. It started about 10 minutes in and just got heavier and heavier until I was in the middle of a thunderstorm and it was raining VERY HEAVILY!! But actually I really enjoyed the run. Once I know I'm going to get wet, then it actually doesn't matter how wet I get... And the rain certainly helped me pick up the speed a little bit - the last time I ran this route I did it in 47.16!

I feel pleasantly tired now, it's a shame I can't put my head down on the desk and have a little cat-nap :-) And of course the sun is now shining again!
