Running in the rain...

...is usually a lot of fun. Once you're wet, it's not like you're going to get any wetter.

Running in the rain, when "rain" equals "thunderstorm with microburst winds and 25 degree temperature drop cold front" is not fun.

So I did my interval workout at the gym. The workout itself was a bit lackluster - I had to cut it short because I was running out of time - but I did get a chance to take a peek at my new form from the front and side in mirrors. So far, so good - at the very least it's a major improvement. The muscle memory has now adapted too - I can only heel strike when I think about it.

In other news, two more first impression gear reviews coming up. I bought a pair of Newton Distance Racers over the weekend, and my customized Nike LunarGlide2s came in the mail yesterday. I've had at least one run in all three. I should be good for shoes for most of the year, assuming 300 miles per pair (I actually don't think the Kinvaras will last that long).


  1. Rick gets black toenails too from running/basketball. He has oddly-shaped toes.

    It's great that you've kept up the running. You are an awesome example to your family and to those around you.

  2. I would love the experience of running in the rain, getting wet but not getting cold. It's hard for me to imagine.
