Outdoor & Rain?

Well this morning it was raining decent but I had committed myself to getting a run in and also getting this run in outside.  I plan on running a 5k in Idaho Falls this coming Thursday so I thought I had better be able to deal with a little weather.   Well I had left my running shoes at the Y so I headed downtown to the Y and head from there for my run.  I got changed and out the door about 8:25 in the morning.  I ran my normal 2 mile loop that heads up through Hyde Park on 13th street to Camels Back park over to 9th street and back down towards downtown and the Co-op.  This is easily the coolest run I have done to date (I have ran this route 3 or 4 times now).  I would love to live down here in this area.  I stopped and walked for 3 different blocks during the run.  I do think I run faster outside but I lost that made up time with walking 3 different times.  I do struggle breathing a little more outside but I think that might be linked with running harder outside as well.  The rain never really bothered me at all.  The rain really felt good for the most part.  It was cold enough that I did wear a long sleeve Nike shirt.  Another good run that ended up being ran in just about 25 minutes.  I will take it…
