I know that sooner or later I’d have to face this fear. I've been running away from it for some time now. :P But as I see the whole lot of runners before me eager beavers to start the run amidst the rain, one thing is certain. Runners aren’t scared of running in the rain. I put on my pink mp3 player and let my feet do the talking on the wet pavement.
Well in fairness it wasn’t much of a hard rain on that Sunday’s breaking dawn. Just the right amount of drizzle to freshen me up as I warm up for the whole 21km route that stretched before me. :P But I was careful with every steps I made though for fear of slipping or something. I didn’t even risk running with my pink trainers since I didn’t want it to get dirty. Haha!!
I just revisited the website for the official results today and yep, my name isn’t in there. L But basing from the results of my coach who clocked in at 2:40, we were definitely 10 minutes slower than my first marathon. Sigh.
To more half-marathons and eventually a full one by the end of this year. ;-) Happy weekend!! :)
