Rain, rain

It isn’t that I mind running in the rain. It’s the chafing potential that makes me shy away from it.

This morning I didn’t have any choice. Scott also got out the door a little later than predicted, so I didn’t have a lot of time for anything longer. I was going to just run the same 2 mile loop I’ve been doing but decided to go a few blocks farther and try to stretch it to 2.5 mi. It worked!

ImageEven though I wanted to go farther, I’m really happy about my times dwindling back down to “normal.” I should run a short distance like this at a faster pace, but that will come. Seeing that I was slogging through at an over 11 min mile pace a few weeks ago, I can’t complain. My pants fit better, too. Hooray for calorie burn!

Runner, Eater, Mother, Tweeter

Amy, July 2013

I'm a thirty-something suburbanite turned ruralite living in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Wife, mom of two, eater of all things delicious, and a runner. This is where I blather on about running and health. Baby Number Three will be here in November (so yes, I'm a little crazy), and I'm running through my pregnancy for as long as my body's willing and able. There's also more of me at amyupnorth.com.
