Of course…..

As soon as I am 3 miles out it starts to pour…..of course :)!

This was my run yesterday. I knew there was a slight chance for rain in the morning, but that was the only time that was going to work for me to run. When I left the house it didn’t really look like rain so I thought I lucked out….wrong! Actually, it wasn’t really too bad (I am pretty sure that anyone who drove past me during this time though thought I was nuts!)…6 miles at an easy pace 2.5 of them were in the rain :). Of course the rain let up and pretty much stopped by the time I got home.

I came across THIS interesting bit of information about one of my favorite runners….Kara Goucher.

I also came across THIS article about the new “Unbroken” movie. The book was amazing. The faith that Louis Zamperini had is inspirational! I like to sometimes listen to audio books when I run…. and seeing this made me want to get and listen to Unbroken next!!!!
