Running in the rain

In all likelihood, it’s going to be raining tomorrow morning when it’s time to run. I don’t mind running in the rain, even a little. Or at least, I don’t think I will. Once upon a time, way back in yesteryear, I hiked in the rain quite a bit. Today’s hike, combined with tomorrow’s forecast, is reminding me that people say doing even a mild detox/cleanse like this has some serious emotional side effects. Never mind that I’ve stopped 2 of my favorite coping mechanisms for stress, food and drink… it’s going to be ok. I’m going to get up tomorrow, and I’m going to take monkey to daycare and I’m going to run. Because that’s what I do now to deal with this kind of stress. Another blogger posted recently–21 days to form a new habit. I want to be one of those people who says “I’m so stressed out, I really need a run.” So I’m going to fake it til I make it. I’m stressed out. Tomorrow, I’ll run, rain or not. And I’ll feel better for it, instead of worse. Have a fabulous night & day, y’all. Thanks for listening.
