Today was a 13 miler for Boston. I woke up and it was raining. By raining, I mean POURING (flash floods and everything!). I knew I would feel better if I got it done, and raining didn’t seem like a good enough excuse, (I’ve ran in snow storms and -26 wind chill before — NOT recommended!), so I laced up and started out.
3 miles in, I was cold, soaked, and not really enjoying my run. I run because I love it. I started thinking “you know Jo, you have FREE access to treadmills in the gym right now. You could be dry, warm, and still get your run in, and you might actually enjoy it.”
I was seriously contemplating this, but I was also already 3 miles in. Then a couple of cars passed, and you know how their tires splash and send that spray up, and it always drenches the people at the worst times in movies?
Yeah, that was me.
And that was it.
I turned around, (actually got drenched again), sprinted back, put on dry socks and shoes, and headed to the gym.
And I STILL got my 13 miler in. 🏃🏼♀️😊
It doesn’t matter HOW you do it — JUST DO IT!
