Nearly every morning I wake up and run. It doesn’t matter the temperature. It doesn’t matter the location. It doesn’t even matter if it is raining. Today it was lightly raining when I went out to run. I don’t really mind if I get wet, but I was traveling later in the day and I was concerned that my shoes would be too wet to pack. I mostly avoided the puddles, but the mud was another story. There’s just no avoiding it when running along the side of the road.
