Dance in the rain

Today I ran. After running two days last week instead of three, I realized that I needed new running shoes. After my last run last week I felt like my right heel was going to fall asleep. I bought the exact same pair of shoes because I like them that much. Before I ran I was at work watching the steady rain fall from the gray sky and I thought, "Do I really want to run today?" I had my doubts. Shortly before I left work, right after the whirlwind came into the coffee shoppe, I knew I needed to run. I needed to clear my mind. I needed to run! So that's what I did. I ran in the rain. It was wonderful. It was beautiful. I giggled inside and smiled on the outside while rain dripped on my face. I was 90% soaked by the time I was done. I'm so thankful we have leather seats in our truck! I wore my new shoes. My feet feel wonderful. I don't even feel my shin. Whoohoo!!! It's amazing what a new pair of running shoes can do! Hallelujah!

Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the rain.

I love that quote! It's so true!

This just made me smile :) I would be grinning while running in the rain too :)
I've started running again, did 2 runs since Sunday and it feels so good to do something else than just run around kids and household...
Have a wonderful weekend, Christina! xox
