My Fun Run in the Rain
Lately I have been noticing how much I have been missing my running. I was at the YMCA the other day on the treadmill and I decided to really push myself. It was awesome and I got so excited, I started to cry. It was awkward, especially for the guy next to me, but I quickly got it together. I think I cried because I remembered how much I loved life in the last quarter of 2010. I was running ALL THE TIME and I felt the BEST that I can ever remember feeling. I want that again. So, I ran 2 miles on the treadmill at the Y about a week ago. Then yesterday, the weather was perfect here, which is very rare in July, so I went for a run in the rain. I haven't done that in a long time, but I gotta say, it was fantastic. The rain here is warm, but it was only 72 degrees yesterday which was perfect. I ran a 5k! It felt GREAT! I cannot emphasize it enough! Soon, I hope, I am going to finally find my groove again and finally find ME. It will be a happy day indeed. Then Samantha will make a movie about it called "How Lindsay Got Her Groove Back." Does that sound good, Sam? Today I am going to take another rest day, but tomorrow you can bet I'll be back out there pounding the pavement. I have to take advantage of all this rain!
