Eric and I ventured out late yesterday evening for our inaugural training in running. Our goal is to be able to run 5K. We are following a program that will shape our running and endurance to run a 5K.
We made it one block before it started to rain. We looked at each other as if to say, “Keep going?” and we did. And then it started to pour - sheets of rain, pouring. I think neither one of us wanted to give up so early on our first attempt but we were soaked. Water ran faster between our legs than we could move them.
We did not run very far. The rain won this race. I hope the loss does not function as punishment to stop us entirely.
