My plan was to go for a run this evening, but the humidity got the best of me so I settled for a walk. I did a little over 2 miles and I could see the threat of rain in the sky. I was so close to making it home before the rain came. I was about a mile from home it started to sprinkle, but I had all the faith in the world that I would make it home before the predicted thunder and lightning hit. When I made it approximately a half mile away the sky opened up and began to pour. I was drenched within a block. It was the perfect warm rain that I love to run in, and a part of me thought of getting home, changing into running shoes and heading back out the door. Unfortunately, the thunder told me staying home was the better decision.
It was fun getting caught in the rain. It made me feel like all the worries from my day were washed away and made me feel a little more prepared for the days to follow. I really do love the rain.
Tomorrow will be a little bit easier and I will become a stronger me everyday.
