My wife on a bike and me on my feet - we did a decent 4k run in less than 30 mins in the pouring and dribbling rain. No runners anywhere. I saw most of the ghosts that pass me when I was driving to work. They obviously waited for the rain to stop before going out.
I wonder if I should worry about this too? Actually I wonder if I shouldn't be worried about more things? I'm still enthusiastic and I really want to run EVERY day ... [screw the friggin Hal Higdon training schedule with all those rest days!]
I'm reading about 33-year-old runners with gout, 29-year-old runners recovering from knee surgery, 45-year-olds recovering from foot surgery. I read that one guy does not run outside if there is a 40% chance of precipitation. Why the frig is this passing me by? I want to be a friggin runner. I run like a castrated bull with two wooden legs and a paralyzed ass! I have had people stop in their cars in my neighborhood and ask if I need a lift somewhere [... like a hospital].
Shouldn't I be worried about something?
[P.S. Skipped the tight pants today (see vulcan nut pinch). Baking soda makes no difference after one day of use in the left shoe. Will use it today as well (see fart suit).]
