You can find a thousand reasons to not go outside for your run. The most common one I hear is “It’s raining”.
Now, I try as hard as I can to make this a judgement free zone. Do what you want, how you want to. But if truth be told, if you do not go for your run because it is raining, well then, I am judging you.
I do not care how sweet of a person you are, you are not made of sugar, and you will do just fine.
Plus – and this is really where it gets good – you will feel 50% more badass running any given route in the rain. Guaranteed.
It doesn’t matter how short, how flat, or how easy that route is. You automatically level up to 50% more badass-ery when running in the rain. It’s fantastic.
AND you get to be the crazy person running in the rain. The next day when you go into work, and everyone says they spent the evening inside, staring drearily out their windows, you can proudly announce “I went for a run.” They will all gape at you, but that is okay, because you got your run in.
Now, go for that run in the rain, you unstoppable badass.
And Happy Running!
