Rain or Shine or Tropical Storm

When I woke up this morning and looked out the window it was still raining (thanks to Hurricane Ian). What I saw beyond the weather was a brief reprieve from the usually laborious runs I do down here in 85-degree weather with 60% humidity. Running in a downpour? Sign me up.

Some people will say they can’t run because it’s raining. That’s an excuse. If I waited for ideal running conditions I’d be on the couch right now watching movies. Do you think I enjoy running in humid, tropical heat?

I’m compelled to run. It’s weird. I never planned on being a runner. I didn’t start running until I was 42 years old. April of 2020. Beginning of the pandemic. Now I can’t go for more than a few days before I get anxious and need go for a run.

Stay in shape.

Stay vigilant.
