Running in the Rain

Tonight I opted to run in the rain rather than run on the "dread"mill with 5 pairs of eye staring at me! The run outdoors was surprisingly wonderful...I was able to run the whole 5K (it's been rough for the past week as I've been on Phase I of South Beach - evidently running and Phase I are not compatible: the running body needs some carbs!) This time, I had a handful of almonds before heading out the door, ran a new route, and it was great! As I ran, I thought of all the "rain"-themed songs I could name. Here's my list:
Healing Rain (Michael W. Smith)
I Love a Rainy Night (Eddie Rabbit)
It's Raining, It's Pouring
Rain Rain Go Away
Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head
Jesus Bring the Rain (MercyMe)
Praise You in the Storm (Casting Crowns)
Thunder Rolls (Garth Brooks)
Thunderstruck (AC/DC)
And then there was one I didn't remember the name of, but I think it's from the 80's - "I saw you (and him), walking in the rain, you were holding hands and I will never be the same" (something like that).
It's amazing the way my mind can wander...anyway, it was a great run!!


  1. You are so good to run! I can't run anymore. It jars my back too much and will cause me more toruble then it is worth. :) I liked running because it gave me time to think!


  2. Good for you! One of these days, I REALLY want to take up running.


I'd love to hear what you have to say about this...
