It Stopped Raining … For A Few Hours!

November 29, 2015 • By

It’s been flooding in the DFW area for 3 days now and it’s supposed to continue until Monday!  It’s not only been wet but it’s been cold!  The highs have been in the high 30s and we’ve only been back in town for 2 days.  We’re already all stir crazy in our household!

We got a brief reprieve from the rain yesterday so Amanda and I went for a 10 mile run.  I had a full running week and just ran 10 on Monday, also, so I didn’t feel “fresh” but decided to make this my long run for the weekend anyhow.  Thankfully, since I’m not where I was in September/October physically, Amanda slowed her pace a little for me.

It was cold.  You could see our breath.  It was wet all over the streets.  We saw flooding everywhere.  But it was nice.  We chatted the whole time and the time went fast.  We never got that chest pain when you push hard.  We just ran to enjoy running and each others’ company.  And it was perfect.  Funny how some days that’s all you need.
