Weather weather lang



After being desperate of not running whenever it rains, I decided to buy a rain jacket that I can use for running. It’s also my reward for hitting my 300km. It cost me more than my budget so I have been excited to use it and get the value for my money. I would even wear it inside the house whenever I feel cold. It helps me justify buying it. But more importantly, I wanted to run with it in the rain.

Two weeks have past and it never rained. I mean it did rain but not during my morning runs. I guess the rain have been playing with me.

Wrong timing

Last week I woke at 5 in the morning and jog along Ayala which is my usual route. I left the house while it was still dark. The stars were shining telling me it would be a good day to run. I wore my running shirt and shorts went off. Everything went well. The sun was almost out at dawn. But everything changed on my last 2 kilometers going back home. Clouds were rushing to cover the sky above me. After a few minutes, it started to rain. While the other people who were walking to the office took shelter, I remained on the road with raindrops keep falling in my head. I arrived home soaking wet. Bad timing.

A second chance

Today, I told myself to be smart. I woke up at 5:30 am. It rained last night and today the sky was a bit cloudy. I decided to bring my jacket just in case it rains. I don’t want to be caught unequipped in the middle of my run. I went out wearing my jacket proudly like I was an commercial model being photographed for an ad page in a magazine.

While running, I kept looking at the sky and observe how the clouds gathered above me. I was hoping it would rain so I can have a new experience in running. I kept running and running at a comfortable pace. After a while, I noticed I was not feeling comfortable anymore. I was confused since I was not running that fast. I looked up and found the answer. The clouds are moving away. The patches of blue skies are getting wider. And the jacket was making me hot inside that I have to removed them. So for the rest of my run, I had my jacket tied behind my back. It never rained at all. By the time I got home, the jacket was wet with sweat but not with rain.

I thought the rain play was over. I took a shower and prepared to go to work. I was set to go when it rained.

I guess it you can’t win when nature plays with you. Just like when nature calls, you can’t win at all.

I need a miracle

It still not clear if my registration for the Men’s Health Miracle Run is 100% ok.  I registered too early at Powerbooks and now it is not an official registration site.  Anyway, I just dropped at the branch and the lady told me that Summit Media already picked up my forms two days ago.  At least, that’s a good assurance.

So I’ll just be there early on Sunday at The Fort for the fun run to get my race packet.  See you.
