Running In The Rain

Oh sweets, how I missed you,

I hope you had a great weekend. My Sunday was a day of extremes which I will tell you more about later today. For now, I thought I would share the results of last weeks poll. I asked you all whether you would rather: Run 1 mile uphill, Run 3 miles downhill, Run 5 miles flat or Watch 6 hours of TV. Well here is what you sweets had to say:

41% of you would rather run 5 miles flat

35% of you would rather run downhill (me included)

17% of you said 1 mile uphill (including HM)

and only 5% (or one of you) said 6 hours of TV

As you may know, I put off my long run yesterday only to wake up to the sound of rain and thunder. Excuses excuses right? Well I laced up my sneakers later that day after the thunder and lightning had passed and went out for my 6 mile run.

Of course I was soaked by the time I got home, but the treadmill was never an option for me. This got me thinking though. For this weeks poll, I want to know:

Do you sweets run in the rain?

Of course, bring it!
Only if being chased.
Never, I'm made of sugar.

Go vote, the poll is on the right top side of this blog.


  1. First time running in the rain was with Team In Training, and because I didn't want to miss practice, I learned that is ok to run even when it is pouring down buckets of rain. I know love running in the rain. I used to fear going for a run in the rain, but there is something about the natural elements of nature, it is actually quite a refreshing and humbling experience. Now, riding my bike in the rain… not my favorite thing, but I will do it have I have to.

  2. I really don't like running in the rain! I will if it's warm out, but cold and rainy means I'm staying at home!

  3. most of the time i enjoy running in the rain (especially on a hot day)...but in the winter i'd rather stay inside and stay dry!
