Week 2 run 1 done- It was one of my best runs so far

Today's weather forecast was stormy winds with a lot of showers here and there. At first, my mind was not up to run today. However as the weather got a little better, I decided to quickly make my way out to start before i give in! So as I was running around the park, the wind was also very heavy so at times I had to run against it, which was a great challenge indeed.

Just before I did my final run, I felt my chest tightening and short breath (must be the cold wind) an wanted to give up again. However, I finished my final part of the run, the sun literally started shining and I saw a double rainbow! I don't know why, but i felt emotional, it was as if i was in tune with the nature. It really felt amazing to finish the run and to see rainbows, a fine reward!

As i returned home, I closed the door to get inside, it literally poured with a lot of rain so i was lucky to not to get wet!

It was quite an adventure for me this morning! I am looking forward to run 2 :) I will look back at this post if I ever needed motivation.
