Inspirational Run

July 18, 2011 (Morning)

Exercise Type: Run

Weather: Thunder-storming

A truly inspirational run today. The pace was nothing special, but I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Just about everything went right, and even the call of nature 5 miles in couldn't phase me. They took the John away from the ball field so I had to improvise.

I started this run by audibly saying "Let's do this". This was completely impromptu; I think I knew how Ivan Drago felt when he said "I must break you" in Rocky IV. It got me so pumped. I got an inspirational song in my head and just kept having positive thoughts. It started storming really hard during the middle part of the run, and I reached that point that I was so wet that I didn't care it was pouring anymore. That's such a cool feeling b/c it is like you've beat the rough conditions. They wanted me to be miserable, but I enjoyed it.
