Running in the RAIN!

Oh my gosh...I just went a WHOLE week without running...shhhh...don't tell anyone!  Ok, ok...that cat's out of the bag.  It wasn't my plan for that to happen, but with going to the ocean, kids and rain....it just never happened.  After a FAST from running I decided to let today be the day that I broke that fast and went out for a run.  I was excited to try my cool, new, blue... Nike shirt out and I LOVE IT!  The first mile was BRUTAL!  Mile one wanted to remind me why it's good to NOT take a week off, but the rest of the miles were SO needed and felt AMAZING.  Thought I would go 3 or 4, but of course I went further.  The rain was coming down and I was loving it.  Running in the rain never sounds fun, but I have to say that some of my best runs have happened in the rain!  It's strange...I know, but there is something great about it!  Of course you need to have good rain gear to make it all work.  Funny how that was one of my reasons for not running this last week and today I loved my run because of the rain...oh go figure...I hate to run on hills and I hate to run on flat...what are you going to do...Tomato, toma(h)ta....Potato, Pota(h)ta!

I went a week with no running and with no blogging, but boy do we have a busy week coming up!  You Go Girl FESTIVITIES start next week!!!  Who is EXCITED...I am, I AM!  Hope my unplanned week off doesn't ruin my run?  Either way it's going to be a great race...regardless of my finish...just fun because it's local and a TON of friends will be running!  Can't wait, can't wait.

And because I have no running pictures...but I know you want some pictures...here are some cute ones from our week at the ocean!

Oh my cuteness!

Love this pic!
