20 miles and weather

I ran 20 miles on Friday morning. The weather cooled down long enough for me to get my long run in and then it warmed up again. I must be doing something right.

Saturday I ran 5 on the trails and then Sunday morning I ran 5 in the rain. I really like running when it rains - especially when it is a downpour. When it rains hard I feel as if I am the only one who exists in a world no one else is willing to enter. The feeling is even more intense when it is dark. Sunday morning it was good to be isolated in the dark torrent alone with my thoughts.
