running in the rain

I love it!

I made it out to the airfield during lunch today; an approximately four/four-and-a-half mile loop. The clouds were making their way in and it started raining about a mile into my run. I've always enjoyed running in the rain. Especially on a warm spring day, the April showers are always a welcome. Today was no exception; albeit, it was a bit chilly with ice still piled up on the sides of the road and the back stretch still covered in slush. The sounds of the choppers circling around the landing strip was an added bonus. I was tempted to wave hello to the pilots, but I refrained myself. But I was smiling during my entire run. If only I had a flower in my hair; now that would have been a sight to see.
