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.
