A different kind of running…

Forgive me blogger friends. It has been 8 days since my last run. I’ve been neglectful my friends and I’m here to confess.

I could tell you all about the various projects I’ve been involved in and how I’ve been up late every night working away and how I’ve had no time for anything me-related and how I’m not sleeping well b/c of that running list through my head…but I won’t. This is not the place, and, really, excuses just sound weak.

I almost went this morning. I was awake and I had my legs over the side of the bed (the first battle!) when I heard it. Rain. Not drizzle either. Full-on rain. The kind of rain that makes you think, “What the heck is that?” Back to bed I went.

I would love to run in the rain, but I’m not there yet. I have yet to experience a drizzle in my running (not by choice; I think this would be so refreshing!), so trying out rain that would stick clothes to skin and cause worry about my ipod (sigh, I’m so dependent) makes me nervous. Add that to my fear of thunder storms and being caught out in one…and yeah, I didn’t go.

Tomorrow. I will try again tomorrow.

In the meantime I continue to tackle Life Things…running at warp speed.

    It is very definitely a good thing that you did not take your little friend, iPod, on a run with you this morning:) I actually met a really awesome guy who was hit by lightening while running with his iPod. He was found unconscious on the sidewalk after the lightening struck, brought to the ER where he stayed for quite some time and, due to the lightening running through his iPod and ear pones, lost a lot of his teeth, some of his hearing, and other gruesome details that I will not use to scare you with here (hopefully what I have listed is enough). His experience was insane!

    So the moral is: please don’t run in the rain with your iPod. We simply couldn’t stand seeing you laid up due to rain:-)
