AM Run

Last night, it started raining around 5 pm, and it kept on raining just about all night, which was a good thing since we need the moisture badly, and this morning when I got up it was still cool and overcast. Perfect. I had a leisurely breakfast (English muffin with PB&J and my one cup of coffee), and then I put on my running stuff and hit the road.

Even though it was cloudy and cooler out, it was still humid, but it didn't bother me too much. I did my standard 3 mile loop and it was one of the best runs I've had in awhile (after the crappy run I had last week, I knew I was due for a good run one of these days).

If only weather conditions could allow me to repeat a similar pattern throughout the summer -- I would love to get up at 8 and run at 9 on a regular basis; however, I know that this cool, cloudy weather won't last, and on most South Florida summer days, to run at 9 am is madness. But, I'm glad I got to take advantage of it this morning!

I so love running in the rain! Not everyone's cup of tea (or coffee) though.

Glad you got in a good rain in some cooler weather! Enjoy it while it lasts.

I don't mind running in the rain, it just takes me a bit to get out there. I am glad you enjoyed a cooler day.

Glad you had a great run. I love running in the rain, and, this past weekend I was in the Keys for the Keys 100...hot as heck, but when it rained a bit it was a nice cooling off.

It was over 80 yesterday, and I just about DIED. I'm so not ready for the summer heat. No idea how to handle it all year.

Graham went out running around 9 this morning also. He loves this weather...but I hate it when he thinks he's all kind of macho and runs at 3pm during the summer. Not cool at all

Glad to hear you had such a good morning run! You're right. You won't have temps like that forever!

I love that cool, damp feeling in the morning after a good rain. Glad you were able to take advantage and had a decent run!

Yeah...I hear ya on the beautiful life that would include running at 9am...but it wouldn't happen in the summer on this coast either!

Glad you got a nice run in!

I can't imagine your humidity! You're a rockstar!

Marcy said...

You're just going to have to start getting up at 6am. Wha? You're gonna have to before too long anyway :P ;-)

Take advantage when you can is the name of the game. We are going through a cool period too here in VA, it's currently 47 degrees out. I might run this morning too.

Glad you had a nice run! The days of waking up before 6am to go for a run is approaching.

I just discovered your blog and wanted to say, "hi." So...HI! I'm a new runner, mom to a 13 month old, and am hoping to get pregnant again sometime after this summer, and possibly run a half marathon while newly pregnant. Anyway, I was googling stuff about that, and I think that's when I found your blog. Funny thing is...your super slow pace right now is my good pace. Oh well...somewhere to start, right? Anyway... glad things are going well for you!

I love running in the rain especially in the summertime. It is finally hitting 80 degrees here for the first time this month. I wish the weather is cooler for a little bit longer. It was good that you got your run in this a.m.

Crystal said...

Good for you! I tried really hard to get my butt up yesterday and this morning and just couldn't do it. I'm hoping to squeeze a run in tonight. Bet it felt good to get it out of the way!
