I ran in the rain for the first time the other day, it was great. It wasn't raining too hard so I didn't get soaked. The biggest obstacles were avoiding puddles and worms. My heart rate is improving and I am getting faster as well. Every other morning I run 3.1 miles (with some walking still) but I am getting better times.
I did sign up for my next race on Thanksgiving morning. I figure it would be a great way to burn some calories before I eat a bunch of turkey and pie! I hope to get my time down to 35 minutes or less. This race is also computer chipped so I will have an accurate time as well. I am excited!
