Life is full of mini triumphs
Training Run finished just before the rain set in..
What started bright and crisp with some good sunshine was forecasted to change. After a few miles I was running just ahead of the leading edge of a rain cloud thinking any minute now I am going to get absolutely soaked...
my run managed to stay like that for a few miles just staying seconds ahead of a nasty shower until myself and the rain cloud parted company as I changed direction somewhat. It would not be the end of the world getting rained on but still nice to get the miles done without having to dry runners etc especially when I wasn’t dressed for the rain. Run Finished in the door and rain with a lot more to follow.
