I just got back from running a little while ago...in the rain, for the first time.
Dave Matthews Band trilogy on the IPOD, starting with Proudest Monkey, steady rain, a little dark and dreary.....SO COOL.
I felt strong, and tough. I felt determined and proud. I felt the urge to scream out things like "YO ADRIANNE!!!" and sing songs like "Getting Strongaaaaaa".
I felt soakin' wet. This was my first run in the rain, and I was contemplating the treadmill, but I can't stand it. So I went for it, and I'm glad I did.
P.S.- Bye Bye 7 pounds. I won't be seeing you again. You were a bad alliance. Hopefully I will be sending you a few more bad alliances on my diet/exercise journey.
