The rain wasn't bad -- it was a nice, steady companion. Unlike my iPod, which, in the last three miles, would only play two or three notes of a song and then jump to the next one. Think I'm due for a new shuffle.
It was a great 8 miles. I stretched a plenty and iced a lot (my knee did bug me a little -- blah) and I feel good overall. Unfortunately, by the time I finished my run, I was so drenched I had to skip the PowerCut class I had planned on attending. Instead -- nice hot shower followed by nice hot breakfast followed by nice long nap!
