My only "rule" for this current streak has been that I must run at least 1 mile a day in order to maintain the streak. Thus far, I hadn't had to reduce my mileage down to that bare minimum, but today, it has been raining pretty much all day long. It has vollied back and forth between downpour and drizzle, but for most of the day, it has rained, rained, rained.
Around 4:30 pm, I was looking out the window, and I asked Jerry for his thoughts: "Should I wait and see if it clears and I can go for a 'real' run; or, should I just go out there and do the bare minimum?"
He replied with: "I'd go and get it over with if I were you."
That had pretty much been my thinking but I had just needed him to verbalize it. So, I laced up and hit the streets in a rain that was somewhere between downpour and drizzle -- let's call it a "dozzle" -- and I was surprised that the Garmin was still able to quickly pick up a signal. I had a specific destination in mind: Some tennis courts that are just a bit more than half a mile away. So, I ran around and over puddles, and while I kinda liked running through the rain, I was drenched by the time I reached said tennis courts, so I turned around as I planned, and got home in 11 minutes and 11 seconds: Shortest. run. ever. And while this picture doesn't do the soaking much justice, I did get pretty dang wet in those 11 minutes. Although, I don't think I was any more drenched than when I sweat through a normal run!
