Yesterday, I accomplished a 40 min run in the rain and I loved it. It's my 3rd since graduating last Saturday and on on each run I've kept to my 40 min increase, covering 7k on each one. I was in two minds yesterday to go out especially with the down pour, but I kept my head strong and ventured out. I now know there is nothing to keep me from running, and that will continue. Tomorrow I am off to Portugal, so new country, new climate, same running shoes. Oh p.s, if anyone knows how to get these graduate badges to magically appear please send the wizard my way. Good luck to everyone on their running ventures, keep head strong, just knock down those brick walls and fight through those stitches ( I did ) .
