Wet and Windy

Since I missed out on my Wednesday run because I wasn't feeling well, I had to run today to stick with my rehab schedule as closely as possible. I am still feeling a little under the weather but it's just a stuffy head so I decided to go for it. (I did skip my spin and swim workout this morning and stayed in bed until noon).
Wouldn't you know it - as soon as I made the decision to run a terrential downpour hit. My jacket and hat are drencheded. I was heavy and slow. (and I know I look like a tool with those stupid headphones, but I can't seem to find any that actually stay inside my ear)
This weekend will be super busy. Driving down to Olympia to hang with the fam.
Tonight - going to be hanging with the niece for a slumber party birthday. Lot's of crazy pre-teens. I hope I don't fall asleep first, but something tells me I dont' stand a chance.
Saturday - family birthday party for said niece
Sunday - The Big Climb. Holy Shit! I really hope I'm feeling 100% for this.
Have a great weekend everyone!

You'll totally fall asleep before those little girlies! Not a chance;) We old folk just can't hang any more. What a run, sheesh. Wet to the bone.

I hear ya! That happens to me often. Headphones don't stay well in my ears either!

Good luck sunday!!!! Hope you are feeling better by then!

Those head phones are the Shizt! Is that electric tape on them? Please say it is. That only adds to their awesomest. Try the Nike ones that go behind your neck. They are the only ones that work for me!

That is a great pic. Hopefully you had a hot shower to warm back up.

I love the running in the rain picture. And I think I might enjoy the headphone look :)

Good job getting that run in when you weren't feeling good AND it was raining.

I hate headphones. None work for me. I can't wait to hear about the climb...and b-day party!

Sorry to hear you're not feeling well-hope you are feeling better by now.

P.S. I have those same headphones for the same reason. They are hideous but oh so comfy.

P.S. Noticed your weight loss on the side bar-CONGRATS!!!! Weight loss is so hard yet so gratifying when it happens. You rock!

I have headphone issues too. I finally found a pair that works -the ipod Nike ones that hook around, but they are so expensive and they seem to "blow out" every 6 months.
