Dear Mother Nature

Why?  I'm talking to you Mother Nature.  Why?  Last week when I was supposed to run 10 miles I was forced to do it inside on a treadmill because you decided to have it rain.  So I sucked it up and ran inside and realized how much it stunk to do it.  But I did it. 

Now let's fast forward 1 week.  I'm supposed to run twelve (12!) miles today.  I had it scheduled for around 2:00 (or 1400 for my military peeps).  What did you decide to start doing at about 1:50 (1350)?  You rain.  And you didn't just rain, you thundered and threw out lightning.  Thanks.  No really, thanks.  Because of you I get to take full advantage of my gym membership and run 12 FREAKIN MILES ON A TREADMILL!  Ugh.  With the help of Las Vegas Jailhouse on the CardioTheater, I made it.  For some reason, watching drunken idiots getting arrested makes the run that much easier.  But I did it and I finished in at 1:43:00.  I wasn't trying for speed at all, just wanted to finish the run. 

So Mother Nature,  could y ou do me a favor and NOT RAIN next Sunday?  Please?  I have 15 miles next Sunday and I am really stoked about it because it will be the longest I have ever run.  So all I ask is that you not rain.  I don't even care about the temperature.  Just don't freakin rain! Thank you.

  1. It was 88, humid, and muggy here today in Austin. It wouldn't have been much fun to run 12 miles in that either!
