Morning Running

This morning I went out for a jog around the neighborhood, and there were a few things different about today’s run. First, there was a light rain. I almost turned back and went home because the skies were threatening to unleash a downpour, but the temperature was warm so I decided to carry on thinking it would be a good experience, at least, to see what the challenges of running in the rain would be. Who knows, it could be rainy on marathon day, right?

Another thing that made this morning’s run different was that there were no cars on the street. I ran for 51 minutes, and only saw one gardener’s truck parking at the front of a house to do some work. The lack of cars was both refreshing and eerie. I could run down the middle of the street (and did so a few times) without worry.

Lastly, as I was lamenting the fact that the rain washed away all of the sidewalk and driveway chalk art, I came across the dinosaurs in the photo above, wearing their masks and practicing proper social distancing. That put a big smile on my face!

After powering up the small hill near the house, I finished the run and felt really good. I was wet from the rain, and my feet were soaked through, but I felt totally energized. 😀

I hope you had a good day!
