Treadmills Suck 10k

After a weekend full of beautiful weather, this week’s forecast looks pretty much like this:


I had a 6miler on the schedule, but I’m not really into stepping out into the rain for a run.  A light drizzle, maybe.  But t-storms, no thanks! 

I actually was just reworking my weekly workout schedule after having complained about the weather to my friend Jena (who happened to also be complaining about the rain and her 6miler), when she sent me this tweet. 


With this picture attached:


Looks like that was the motivation I needed to brave the rain (in my car) and head to the gym for a treadmill 10k. 

I had to return my running buddy the favor, so here is Jena’s bib for tonight’s race!


Social media can be so motivating!

Off to the gym I go…

Be well,
