I probably should have paid more attention to the weather before heading out on my lunch break run. I knew it was raining (which is why I didn’t bike in to work today), and I knew it would be cold. I guess I just didn’t realize how hard it would be raining or how cold it would be.
I was a little more than 3/4 of a mile into my run when I decided to turn around. The lightning alert system on the aircraft maintenance hangar was going off (meaning lightning within 5 miles) and the rain was coming down at a 45 degree angle. Figured I should pretend to be smart and get my ass back inside.
1.67 miles after I started, I was back in the locker room. I’m pretty sure I spent more time warming up in the shower after than I did actually running. Can’t remember the last time I went out for such a short run.
