It has been nothing short of wet here in Ohio. While my home in Texas is experiencing a drought and wild fires I am fighting off a moldy and damp basement, a swamp like backyard and rain. Lots of rain.
If I wait for a dry day then I will never get to run outside. So here I am braving a sometimes chilly often muddy run. At first it was weird and the girl inside me was scream "ick" and "my hair will be ruined!" everytime a drop of rain or splatter of mud graced my presence. But over the last month I have come to love a good sweaty run in the rain.
Today I ran a hilly course. It was muddy too. Very muddy. I was so glad for the cloud cover and the few blessed drops of rain that aided my tomato red sweaty face. I kicked mud up my legs and even slid a little down the hill. Totally satisfying. Nothing like a little dirt to prove that you worked hard and had a good time all in the same moment.
