running in the rain

When I woke up this morning it was grey and cold, but not raining.  Sadly, by the time I got to the trailhead, that changed.  And it rained the whole time I was out.

Running in the rain is weird.  There are no bikers on the trail, or walkers.  Everyone is friendlier - usually runners may acknowledge each other with a nod or hello, but many are too into their head for that.  Today everyone said hello and waved.  It's as though the more people who are being crazy and running in the rain, the less insane each of us must be.  (Sadly, I don't think insanity divides, but multiplies.)  I don't know any of the other folks I saw running this morning but we're all part of a community, and this morning I really felt that.

Also, shoes that are designed to let air in to keep your feet cool are shit when you're running through puddles.  Just saying.
