It’s been raining here in Orlando since Saturday night. Rain, rain and yet more rain (it’s as if we haven’t had enough wet, sogginess). I hear this tropical storm or depression, whatever those weather folks call it is to.blame. The culprit’s name is Debby. I suppose adding a name to these storms makes someone in weatherland dance for joy.
Meanwhile, those of us who love the great outdoors get stuck inside. I had planned to bike on Cady Way with a friend yesterday, but it just didn’t happen. I was going to have Bob Harper push me around via a DVD workout, but I bummed out of that. Soaking wet days with endless downpours make me not want to do much of anything.
Here we are at Monday night, the eve of my usual Tuesday 3-miler, and all I can do is hope and pray for a dry morning tomorrow. I have yet to run in the rain, and while it may be something I will have to do soon, I’d prefer it be later rather than sooner. I can give a list of reasons (excuses?) as to why I don’t want to run in the rain. Believe me, I have a good sized list (beginning with that my glasses will get wet and foggy).
So, maybe you more weather experienced runners can help me out here. If (okay, when) I have to brave the wet, what can I do to make the experience less dreadful? Your tips and advice is very welcomed!
